DONATED COLLECTION TO THE
JOHN B. COLEMAN LIBRARY, FEBRUARY 2007
Dr. King. the Audre and Bernard Rapport Regents Chair in Jewish Studies and Distinguished Teaching Professor from the University of Texas at Austin came to Prairie View A&M University on February 28, 2007 to present his lecture entitled “Predicting the Future, Friendship and Giving.”
From Dr. Robert D. King’s generous donation of books to the John B. Coleman Library, the library displayed a collection of his books in the foyer. The exhibit, which ran from February-September 2007 is in appreciation of Dr. King’s donation of over one thousand volumes from his personal collection. The books were displayed according to the following categories: English, German, Language, Linguistics and Phonemics.
The collection is currently being housed in the Special Collections/Archives Department on the fifth floor of the library. This location was chosen so that every member of the student body, faculty, staff and Community can enjoy the collection. Dr. King plans to make further donations to the John B. Coleman Library.
