FIRST BOOKS GIVEN

Company 91 Years Ago, ;

175,000 BOOKS HAVE

Still on the shelves of the Uni-
versity library and in active ser-
vice after 81 years, is a set of 10
volumes, the first books ever pre-
lsented to the University, the All-
gemeine Deutsche Real-Encyclo-
paie, published in Leipzig, Germany,
The 'old volumes, donated by
Charles W. Borup, an agent of the
American Fur company at La
Pointe, Wisconsin, came from the
fur-trading post in that town,
which is located on Madeline Is-
land in Lake Superior.
Research on the subject by Dr.
Frank E. Robbins, assistant to the
president, has indicated that Bor'-
up, who, as proprietor of the chief
trading post of a great pioneer or-
ganization, lived a life' of rusticity,
cut off from civilization, may have
been influenced to give the books
to the University by D o u g1a s
Houghton, who held a professor-
ship on the then new institution
and frequently visited the Lake Su-
Curious biographical notes on
Borup declare that he was "a high-
ly cultivated and intelligent gentle-
man," surrounded by Indians, voy-
ageurs, and pioneer woodsmen in
the midst of virtually impenetra-

has offered continuous advice for
the reorganization work, and has

Dr. Bishop came to Michigan in
1915, from the Library of Congress
at Washington, D. C. Before that
he was affiliated with the libraries
of the Garrett Biblical Institute, at
Evanston, Ill., the Polyteenic Insti-
tute of Brooklyn, N. Y., and Prince-
When Dr. Bishop visited Michf-
gan in 1889, the University had a
library staff consisting of three
full-time members and six part-
time members, with 80,000 books in
the stacks. Now there are approx-
imately 130 full-time members of
the staff of which he is the head,
40 student workers, and a library
housing more than 820,000 books.
In addition there are at least 20
more full-time employees in the

Although his activities do not al-
low him so much time.'for personal
contact with students, except those
enrolled in the department of li-
brary tscience, Dr. Bishop's work
is nevertheless valuable to every
student of the University. The li-'
braries are unquestionably an' in-
dispensible and valuable depart-
ment of Michigan, and much of the
credit for their present superiority
goes to Librarian Bishop.
