Abstract
Bert G. Hornback was a professor of English and Literature at the University of Michigan from 1964-1992. During his career he developed friendships with various novelists and poets, who in turn gifted him with copies of their publications with inscriptions, dedications, and signatures. The collection includes those autographed materials arranged by author and then by title. A larger donation of titles was given to the Eastern Michigan University Library with the majority of materials separated to the circulating collection of the library.
