In June 2013 King’s College held a conference to mark the centenary of the birth of A.N.L. (Tim) Munby. Tim was Librarian at King’s from 1947 to 1974, and occupied many other College offices besides.
The conference was highly successful, with a distinguished panel of speakers from the world of bibliography and the history of books, and 120 registered participants. There were exhibitions at King’s and the University Library, a tour of the Fitzwilliam Founder’s Library, and a dinner with entertainments.
As a follow-up to the conference, and as a permanent tribute to Tim Munby, King’s College plans to inaugurate a fund in his name. Donations to the fund will support projects initiated by Munby, or related closely to his interests and achievements.
The initial objective will be to complete the online cataloguing of all of the books in the collection of John Maynard Keynes. Tim Munby began his career at King’s as the first cataloguer of Keynes’s great collection.
A separate page contains details about how to donate to the Munby Centenary Fund. Enquiries may also be made to Peter Jones ( ), Fellow and Librarian, King’s College.
