The Charles S. Frey collection contains materials related to bicycling and bicycle enthusiasts
ranging from pamphlets and periodicals to illustrations and comic books. It was created by Ruth Frey Axe in honor of her nephew,
an airman who lost
his life during World War II. She began collecting in 1956, and acquired diverse and hard to find items, including some of
the earliest 19th century
pamphlets on bicycling.
