Biography and History in the William F. Causey Collection

The next time you visit Bender Library stop by the second floor to see the most recent selection of works from the William F. Causey Collection. This collection contains first editions many of which were signed by the author or inscribed to Bill Causey.

Though Causey was an avid collector of literature especially crime and suspense novels, he also amassed a broad array of nonfiction titles covering early modern history to the present. He collected around his personal interests such as the Civil War and the Kennedy assassination as well as biographies and memoirs.

Featured in the display are scholarly works on American and European history and biographies of Winston Churchill, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and John F. Kennedy and his brothers.
