Browne Popular Culture Library
Named Collections in the BPCL
Many collections in the Browne Popular Culture Library are named for people who have collected materials on a certain topic or genre and then generously donated their collections to our library. Some collections are donated posthumously and named in honor of the original collectors. These collections include a variety of topics--everything from Star Trek to mysteries to self-help books.
- Arthur and Phyllis Rieser Mystery Collection
- This collection includes first editions, early printings and trade editions of mystery and suspense novels, including true crime and fictional crime from about 1880 to the present.
