University at Buffalo Libraries - Lockwood - Kelley Collection
Some of you might be wondering about the philanthropist mentioned in the previous post. George Kelley is a longtime member of DAPA-Em, and a collector of old paperback books. Being smarter than most of us, George donated a big chunk of his collection to a university library. Amazingly, the library was happy to get the books, and there's a cool website devoted to the collection. You can search the "Gumshoes, Sleuths, and Snoopers" database, you can check out some cool covers, or you an read the "Introduction," which includes a photo of George himself. Just click the link above and have a look.
