Steenbock Memorial Library, the agricultural library of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, contains one of the finest collections of bee literature in the world, with special strength in literature written in English, French, German, and Dutch; it houses the C.C. Miller Collection, which is made up of the personal libraries of Arthur C. Miller, Charles C. Miller, H. J. O. Walker, and other individuals. Steenbock has material which complements the Charles Dadant Papers; viz, the works of Charles and Camille Pierre Dadant; pamphlets, catalogs, and publications of Dadant & Sons; Kent L. Pellett, Charles Dadant, that Bee Man from Champagne (Lehigh, Iowa, undated), typewritten manuscript, 119 p.; Frank C. Pellett, History of American Beekeeping (Ames, Iowa, 1938); Florence Naile, America's Master of Bee Culture: The Life of L.L. Langstroth (Ithaca, N.Y., 1942); and the bee journals mentioned in the biographical note. Since the Charles Dadant Papers contain letters written in several languages, it may be helpful to read them with the aid of the polyglot dictionary edited by E. E. Crane, Dictionary of Beekeeping Terms (London, 1951).
