Floyd R. Erickson Endowment for Special Collections
Established in 2006 by Floyd R. Erickson to purchase materials for Special Collections. Mr. Erickson was the founding Library Director of the University, when the University first opened its doors in 1959. He was responsible for creating the Library’s Special Collections with the purchase of Dr. Henry Hart’s personal research papers and other materials, which include many rare books. Since that time, many additions have been made to the materials in the Floyd R. Erickson Special Collections room.
Erickson retired as head of the University Library in 1980, but from his love of Special Collections he subsequently established a supporting endowment in recent years. Your gift to this endowment will be added to the principal, and interest on the account will fund new additions and improvements to CSUEB’s Special Collections.
