A Generous Gift to the Philip Weltner Library Spotlights Elizabeth Goudge

 

The Angela Thirkell Society is pleased to be able to contribute a selection of Elizabeth Goudge books to the Philip Weltner Library of Oglethorpe University. A 501(c)3 Corporation, the Angela Thirkell Society Board of Directors voted that this donation be made because of the emphasis that you have at the Philip Weltner Library. Oglethorpe University is providing a valuable resource to the literary community by serving as the repository of works by this author, beloved by many during her own era and now recognized for their literary, historical and social significance.

This collection was a bequest to the Angela Thirkell Society from the Mary Hays estate, and it is our request that the books be retained, either as reference works or circulating copies, depending on other copies you already have in your collection. Very few years into the future, the ability to collect and retain books from this time period will become extremely difficult, and it is the recognition of both the Angela Thirkell Society and the Elizabeth Goudge Society of the fragile nature of retaining these works that prompted us to make the selection of the Philip Weltner Library, Oglethorpe University.
