The Dr. George F.G. Stanley Collection was donated to Special Collections by the late Dr. George F.G. Stanley. It represents the working library of a noted Canadian scholar of the 20th century. Aside from the value of the individual titles in the collection, the collection as a whole provides interesting research material for scholars of the history of the book. Few such libraries remain intact in English-speaking Canada. In addition to the published works in the collection, there is archival material donated by Mrs. Ruth L. Stanley who also donated Canadian art books from her personal library.
