Biographical / Historical
The L. Tom Perry Special Collections (2000- ) is a special collections library and manuscripts/archival repository. The Perry Special Collections was named in May 2000, and was previously known as the Department of Special Collections & Manuscripts.
Aline and L. Sam Skaggs, through their ALSAM Foundation, made a generous financial donation to the new library and requested that the Special Collections be named after L. Tom Perry, an apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The department is responsible for collecting, preserving, and making available rare books, historical manuscripts, and university records. Department chairs have included Scott Duvall (1999-2002), P. Bradford Westwood (2002-2009), Russ Taylor (2009-2014), and J. Gordon Daines III (2014- ).
