The Armstrong Browning Library’s 2021 Baylor Book Society Acquisitions

by Rachel Jacob, Armstrong Browning Library Graduate Research Assistant

The Baylor Book Society, established in 1970 as the Moody Memorial Library Book Fund, provides a way for donors to strengthen the book purchases of Baylor Libraries and create a lasting tribute. The contribution of an individual or group creates a legacy as the Libraries place a special plate with the name of the donor and the honoree in the first volume which the funds help acquire.

The Armstrong Browning Library purchased the following books through donations to the Baylor Book Society.
