Jewish American Authors

In June of 1999, the first 350 books of Leonard Milberg's newest donation to the Library arrived. Additions are made regularly. This new collection - Jewish American Writers - is being formed in honor of President Harold T. Shapiro.

See the printed catalogue for the collection, compiled by J. Howard Woolmer. The Leonard L. Milberg Collection of Jewish American Writers. (Princeton, N.J. : Princeton University Library, 2001) [(ExB) Z1229.J48 P74 2001].

The collection is regularly growing and catalogue entries for individual items in it can be retrieved in the main catalog by searching "Milberg '53 in honor of President Harold T. Shapiro" as a phrase using the Keyword index. (To do this: 1. Go to Guided Search. 2. Put "Milberg '53 in honor of President Harold T. Shapiro" in the first search box. 3. Select "as a phrase" from the pull down menu. 4. In the next pull down menu at right, select "Keyword Anywhere" 5. Then, click the button labeled "Search")

As of the end of 2 March 2013, the following 141 authors are being collected. Note: Asterisk before names indicates that author is part of the Milberg American poetry collection. There are 31 overlapping names.
