The Grace Palmer Postcard Collection (M 5) in Meyer Library’s Special Collections in Archives is a small collection of almost 1,000 postcards collected by former MSU librarian Grace Palmer. She worked in the library from 1912 until 1958 and was Head Librarian beginning in 1918. She enjoyed travelling and collected postcards from the places she visited, including from several countries around the world, with many of the postcards coming from Mexico. Most of the postcards date between approximately 1930 and 1955.
