A generous U.S. history collection of over 1,200 books from a donor's late husband has been donated to the University Library.  It covers all 45 U.S. presidents from George Washington to Donald Trump, consisting of their biographies and administrations, and also covers other famous figures in U.S. history, such as Robert E. Lee and the Ohio Gang.


Two example titles from the collection are Washington's Spies by Alexander Rose and A Just and Generous Nation by Harold Holzer and Norton Garfinkle.
