Researchers can have a glimpse at the infancy of the automobile through the use of the Marr Collection. Marr, best known for his design work in the early days of the Buick Motor Company, also designed and briefly manufactured his own Marr Auto-Car in 1903.

Included in this collection are photographs, vehicle sales literature, blueprints, business correspondence, early automotive patent information and a large volume of vehicle trade publications.
