Sylvia Holden Robb Library Collection Endowed Fund
The Sylvia Holden Robb Library Collection Endowed Fund was established in 2000 with a generous gift by Sylvia Holden Robb. The Fund supports the general research collections, providing annual funding for the acquisition of materials across all academic disciplines.
Robb was a dedicated and generous supporter of the Libraries for over 20 years until her passing in 2006 at the age of 97. Her many gifts to the Libraries include the naming of the Roger C. Holden Graduate and Faculty Reading Room in Langson Library, and the establishment of the Sylvia Holden Robb Library Endowed Fund with a gift from her estate.
