Gifts of note

In 2010, the Library received some additional notable gifts from Dr. William H. Matchett, Class of 1949. Eight books are from the collection of his mother-in-law, Elizabeth Cox Wright, who taught English literature at Swarthmore for 32 years and retired in 1964. Dr. Matchett also donated a collection of correspondence and related documentation between himself and T.S. Eliot regarding the latter’s Four Quartets. Dr. Matchett wrote his senior thesis for Swarthmore College on this work, and exchanged letters with Eliot in 1948 and 1949. We are very pleased to have these wonderful additions to our collection.
