Art Collections

Percy Woodward Collection

In 1951, University Trustee Percy Woodward donated his large collection of art, mostly Asiatic with some Egyptian and Meso-American,  to the University, most of it finding a home in the School of Theology Library.  This collection of statuary and artifacts from non-Christian religions mostly in Tibet and China show the diversity of human religious iconography.
