Campbell Library would like to thank retired Rowan University professor, Desmond McLean, for his very generous donation of nearly 700 contemporary poetry books.
Acquired over 20 years, this comprehensive collection of poetry significantly adds to current holdings. McLean began his tenure with Rowan’s College of Fine and Performing Arts in 1966. He retired in 2002 and now happily spends much of his time painting. Bookplates have been created in recognition of Mr. McLean’s gift.
We offer special thanks to Head of the English Department, Dr. Catherine Parrish, and students Steve Burns and Lauren Addeo for their help in loading and moving each of the poetry books from the home of Desmond McLean to Campbell Library.
