The Old Library, which is an extension by G.F. Bodley of the original sixteenth-century College Library, contains material given by benefactors throughout the College’s history. Amongst the Western literary manuscript collections are the papers of the poet Charles Stuart Calverley (1831-1884), and the research papers of Dr D.H.W. Dickson on the scientist and novelist C. P. Snow.
