Hamilton College's Beinecke Collection of the Lesser Antilles is the preeminent collection of materials on the Lesser Antilles. The Wellin Museum's holdings include prints, drawings, watercolors and oil paintings dating from the 18th and 19th centuries and is complimented by holdings in Hamilton's Burke Library Special Collections, which can be accessed at http://elib.hamilton.edu/beinecke

This collection was originally developed by Walter Beinecke, Jr., a former Hamilton College Trustee.
