Dean P. Lockwood, Librarian at Haverford from 1920-1949 was also a Professor of Latin at the college for over 30 years. In the course of his own research, he acquired a large library of materials, which he left to the college, along with his own papers. In the course of arranging the papers, we discovered two 15th century Latin manuscripts that were a bit obscure until they were examined by a scholar, Thomas Izbicki. He noted that both manuscripts are from the same text and are copies of one of Barzizza’s texts on rhetoric based on Cicero. While both of these manuscripts are lovely, the second one is incomplete. The Lockwood papers will soon be ready for public research.
