The Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis and Friends at Taylor University seeks to facilitate and encourage the reading and study of C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Charles Williams, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Owen Barfield.

The focal point of the Center is the Brown Collection, located in the lower level of the Zondervan Library. The Brown Collection consists of first editions, letters, manuscripts, photographs, and other items relating to these authors. It is considered to be the third largest C.S. Lewis collection in the world. The Center also contains a replica of the pub where Lewis met with a group of friends who called themselves “The Inklings.” 

  The Center is open when classes are in session 
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11:00AM - 2:00PM,
with other times available by contacting us.

In Memory of Dr. Edwin Brown

Dr. Ed Brown

Dr. Ed Brown's wonderful collection of first editions and manuscripts of C. S. Lewis and Friends became the basis for the Lewis and Friends Society at Taylor University (which later became the Center for the Study of C. S. Lewis and Friends). He lived a long life, distinguished by his commitment to the field of medicine, to his Christian faith, to higher education, to his family, and, thankfully for us, to fellow readers of Lewis and friends. His life was exemplary, and we will treasure the memory of his friendship and the heritage he has entrusted to us. Read more about Ed Brown here.
