    Cogswell Collection of Canadian Literature and Poetry

    Fred Cogswell (1917-), after whom this non-circulating collection of books in Room 158 is named, is a noted Maritime author. Consequently, much of the content is Maritime or Canadian in nature. Cogswell taught at the University of New Brunswick from 1952 to 1982. From 1983 onwards he has been Professor Emeritus.

    George A. Rawlyk Historical Collection

    The non-circulating books from the estate of George A. Rawlyk (1935-1995) are found in Room 158, first floor. Rawlyk was a History lecturer at Mount Allison University from 1959 to 1961. Subsequently, he taught at Dalhousie University (1963 to 1965) and at Queen’s University (1966 to 1995). The books in the collection deal primarily with Canadian and religious history; however, theses that he supervised are also included.
