The library has accepted 768 books as a donation from the
personal collection of Donald Douglas, Ph.D., a retired
assistant professor of history at Wichita State University.
Douglas is recognized for his many publications on Nazi
Germany and the Holocaust. The library staff is currently
taking inventory of the donation, and will find them a new
place to call home within Dugan Library.
Douglas made the gift to Newman in appreciation of the
Holocaust programs the university presents, including
courses and special speakers. The university also works
with The Wichita Holocaust Commemoration Council and
Inter-Faith Ministries to present speakers or programs
related to the Holocaust.
