Cory Library For Historical Research

The Cory Library is found at Rhodes University and collects materials of all kinds to support research into the history of South Africa, related fields in the social sciences and the preservation of Eastern Cape history. It houses rare and modern books, periodicals and newspapers, maps, microforms, video and audio recordings, Cape and other government publications as well as manuscripts. It is also home to the archives of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa.

The initial collection was thanks to Sir George Cory and since then there has been a particular focus on the history of the Eastern Cape and Grahamstown itself. You will also be able to find a map from 1895 of the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope which is signed by J. Templar Horne, Surveyor General and it contains details of mission stations, military posts, schools, post offices and more. This is only a small section of the phenomenal collection housed in this library.

This library is maintained by Rhodes University primarily for its faculty and students, however, the Cory Library staff are always friendly and willing to assist both researchers and visitors to the Library.
