Heidelberg College's Beeghly Library is expanding its collection of books based on the correpsondence of famous and notable people. The library houses a

collection of books which chronicle the lives of many individuals through their letters. Some are famous, others simply tell the tales of their era. This resource was given to the college by the late Ralph Besse, a 1926 Heidelberg graduate.

The collection has nearly 8000 titles today, up from the 2500 titles donated by Besse in 1967. More here from the Advertiser-Tribune from Seneca County, Ohio. Heidelberg College is in Tiffin, OH.
