The Robert Ault Archives of the American Art Therapy Association is located at the main library of Emporia State University in Emporia, KS. Named in honor of the founder of the master’s in art therapy program at ESU and a pioneering figure in the field of art therapy, the Archives will function as the permanent location for the preservation and storage of AATA’s historical documents and materials. As of 2009 the archiving process is still underway but once completed will be made available to AATA members and the public.
The University of Kansas (Lawrence campus) houses a collection of resources by Kansas art therapy pioneer Mary Huntoon. You may contact (785) 864-8983 or http://www.lib.ku.edu/ for more information.
In 2008 Accessible Arts, Inc. of Kansas City donated their entire resource library to Emporia State University. This is a collection of resources on the arts and disabilities spanning the twentieth century. This gift was made to honor the memory of their former collaborations with art therapist Robert Ault and for the expressed purpose of making it accessible to Emporia students.
