With the arrival in 1894 of Fred Lewis Pattee, for whom Pattee Library is named, Penn State became one of the earliest centers for American Literature Studies—at the time a controversial departure from English Literature. A pioneering scholar in American Literary History, Pattee was the first in the nation to hold the title of Professor of American Literature.
