University of Puget Sound is proud to be the permanent repository of the Abby Williams Hill Collection, some of which can be found in Collins Memorial Library. The collection features the paintings, works on paper, writings, and ephemera of this early Tacoma artist.

Abby Williams Hill (1861–1943) was a painter and activist with an insatiable love of travel and learning. Just as her artwork provides us with a lasting vision of many of the iconic sights of the American West, her papers paint a remarkably rich picture of American life between the Civil War and World War II. The collection was donated to Puget Sound by Mrs. Romayne Hill.
