The Monro Collection
Before the days of computers, the Editor would send members of the Publications Committee a marked-up sheet showing what days were available for a meeting. The initialed page would come back revealing the best day. However, the decision process was not fast, because there was often no quorum, with many of the academic committee members away on study leave. By May 1979, Professor Douglass Taylor’s bibliography on the Monro Collection was ready for printing. Although expensive to produce, and deemed a slow seller, its publication was in keeping with one aim of the University Press: to publish works of scholarship by those within the University community.
