Emeritus Professor Stewart Truswell donates extensive book collection to the Department
The Department of Human Nutrition would like to thank Emeritus Professor Stewart Truswell from the University of Sydney for the kind donation of books from his personal library. In accepting the gift, the Head of the Department of Human Nutrition, Professor Samir Samman, commented that the wide-ranging collection of books has extended and complemented our existing collection, which will continue to serve as a resource for our staff and postgraduate students. There are increasingly fewer opportunities for academics to access an historical collection such as the books that Professor Truswell has personally selected and arranged on the dedicated bookshelves.
Professor Truswell has a strong connection with the University of Otago. He has visited the Department of Human Nutrition on numerous occasions as a collaborator or external examiner, but is best known as the co-author of the core textbook for the majority of our undergraduate papers, “Essentials of Human Nutrition”, with the 5th edition soon to be released.
