Gordon Athol Anderson Collection

Collection History

Before his death, the late Professor Anderson built up an extensive library of books, journals, editions of music, manuscripts and microfilm. The collection was especially rich in reproductions and microfilm of medieval manuscripts otherwise unavailable outside Europe. The Collection was generously donated to the University by Laurel Anderson, Professor Anderson's widow.

For more information about Professor Anderson, see the page Scholarly life and achievement. There is also an online bibliography.
