Woolums Collection

This collection consists of over 3,000 stud books, periodicals, and reference works on 20th-century Thoroughbred racing. Margaret (Sissy) Woolums was one of the world's experts on pedigrees and she had amassed a library that included stud books from more than 38 countries worldwide where Thoroughbreds are bred and raced. The collection is housed in the periodical stacks on the lower level.

Monographs from the collection are cataloged; serials are not cataloged at this time. View inventory of monographs. View inventory of serials.
