The former private collection of Edgar J. Goodspeed (1871-1962) consisted of a perhaps two hundred papyri and numerous fragments.
104 papyri were donated to the University of Chicago Library in 1959-1961 (Ms. 1057-1061, 95 papyri given by Goodspeed himself) and in 1972 (9 papyri, given by Goodspeed to Deniston University in Granville, Ohio and deposited on permanent loan in the University of Chicago : Mss. 1062-1070).
One published papyrus (LDAB 5006) and about 100 small fragments are now in the Library of the School of Theology, Claremont Graduate School, California; they were donated by E.C.Colwell and are therefore known as "Colwell papyri".
Six papyri were supposedly given by Goodspeed to Redlands University, California, but attempts to locate them in the A.K.Smiley Public Library in Redlands have been unsuccessful.
