The Mark Twain Archive: The Antenne Collection
In 1994 Elmira College received the gift of the Antenne Collection, consisting of a number of volumes from Samuel Clemens' personal library. At the time of Clemens' death, Katy Leary, a native Elmiran and trusted family servant for over thirty years, was given these books by Clara Clemens, Sam's only surviving daughter. They remained in the Leary family until Katharine Leary Antenne, Katy's great niece, and her husband Robert made the generous decision to place the books at Elmira College for the enjoyment of Twain enthusiasts and for the use of Twain scholars.
