Monday, November 3-Wednesday, November 5 I visited the Mecca of C. S. Lewis studies: The Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois. The Wade Center has many items of interest to C. S. Lewis fans, like the Lewis family wardrobe crafted by Lewis's grandfather:
The Wade Center also houses a number of items of interest to Lewis scholars such as many of the books from Lewis's own library, the majority of Lewis's original letters, and the eleven- volume "Lewis Papers" compiled by C. S. Lewis's brother, Warren.
I felt like a kid in a candy shop, not sure which confection to sample first. However, I did spend a good bit of time doing research for a couple of book projects. As always, I found the people of the Wade Center to be most gracious and helpful. My only regret is that I had so little time there. I'd like to go back some time and spend a month!
