Description Details
 
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, a richly illustrated chronicle of the Harry Ransom Center was published in 2006.

This work traces the Center's growth from the founding of the university to the birth of Harry Ransom's idea to establish a research center in the humanities that would be for the state of Texas what the Bibliotheque Nationale is for France. Collecting the Imagination tells the story of the Center's collections, the philosophy behind their acquisition, and the Center's commitment to sharing its holdings with the public.

Edited by Megan Barnard.

Introduction by former Ransom Center Director, Thomas F. Staley.
