Merrick Hymnody Collection
In 2005 Phillips received alumnus Rev. Daniel Merrick’s hymnody collection from his widow, Mrs. Dagmar Merrick. Housed in the Charles W. & Helen L. Edwards Special Collections Room, the Merrick collection is comprised of over 1,100 titles, including monographs, journals, & ephemera. Most books in the collection are available for circulation. The library continues to develop materials in this collection.
Noteworthy are Merrick’s records from his tenure as editor of the Chalice Hymnal for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
