The Killie Campbell Africana Library is well known for its comprehensive collection of books, manuscripts and photographs, covering a broad sweep of information about the south east African region and its population.

Some highlights of this collection are the Historic Photograph Holdings, a large section of which is accessible on the web, the James Stuart papers which record some 200 testimonies of oral history and tradition taken down by this early 20th century Natal civil servant.

Campbell Collections

The Campbell Collections are housed in a neo-Cape Dutch style house, Muckleneuk, formerly the home of Natal sugar farmer and politician Sir Marshall Campbell (1848 - 1917). The Campbell Collections were established by Marshall's son William (1880 - 1962) and his daughter Killie Campbell (1881 - 1965). Killie Campbell, a well known africana collector, lived in Muckleneuk until her death in 1965 when her collections were bequeathed to the University of Natal.
