Dr. Clare C. Johnston Memorial Endowment

Established by Dr. Mark D. Johnston in memory of his late father, Dr. Clare C. Johnston, to support the University Libraries for books and materials to be added to the general collection in the areas of arts, sciences and humanities.

Dr. Johnston was passionate about libraries, books, and learning; and wished to instill this passion in others, in the hope that future generations would continue to benefit from the wealth of knowledge contained within the written word. This endowment, along with his extensive book collection, which has been donated to the University Libraries’ general collection, provides the means to help fulfill his vision.

Books and materials purchased will be added to the Dr. Clare C. Johnston Collection in the library’s catalog.
