We present an atlas of stellar Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer\/ (EUVE\/) spectra. The spectra of approximately 80 stars acquired between 1992 June and 1995 June have been uniformly processed from data in the EUVE\/ public archive. Sources were chosen for inclusion in the atlas based on their brightness and the quality of their spectra. We have divided the atlas into four sections, representing classes of stellar sources seen by EUVE\/: early (O--F) stars, late (G--M) stars, white dwarfs, and cataclysmic variables. Other stellar and non-stellar classes will be presented in future atlases. For each section, we summarize the EUV spectral properties of the class and then show the spectra along with detailed comments on the individual sources. The spectra contained in the atlas will also be made available through the CEA WWW site at This work was supported by NASA contract NAS5-29298 and NASA grant NAG5-2902.
