Collections of The Morton Arboretum Archives

Part of the Suzette Morton Davidson Special Collections, the Arboretum’s archival collections house not only the historical and operating records of the Arboretum, but also the papers of several prominent landscape designers and naturalists.

The collections include thousands of original manuscript materials, artifacts, audiovisual materials, maps, photographic images, and even a collection of butterfly and moth specimens collected in 1895. These materials may be viewed in person or online.
