This collection, located on the third floor, contains the literary materials of the late Rev. Raymond Roseliep, Professor of English at Loras College who served in the Department between 1946 to 1982. A description of the collection is available here. Roseliep was an established poet who gained a reputation as a haikuist, and was the winner of the prestigious Henderson Award. He tied for first place in 1977, received an honorable mention in 1979, and won the first place award in 1982.
