John F. and Jeanne A. Marszalek Library Fund & Lecture Series

The John F. and Jeanne A. Marszalek Library Fund

On December 5, 2002, John F. and Jeanne A. Marszalek donated $20,000 to establish a fund at Mississippi State University Libraries for the purchase of primary source materials on three aspects of American history: Civil War and Reconstruction; Jacksonian America; and race relations. Materials purchased with this fund may be of any type other than monographs or journals.

The Mississippi State University Foundation and Mississippi State University Libraries jointly administer the fund. A committee including the Marszaleks, the Dean of MSU Libraries, and selected historians, archivists, and librarians selects materials for purchase according to MSU Libraries' acquisitions and cataloging parameters.

MSU Libraries welcomes purchase suggestions and monetary donations to the Fund.
