Ownership
  • Gift of Dr. Ralph Cohen: Study Library Collection.
  • Dr. Ralph Cohen (1917-2016), inaugural Provost Distinguished Professor at James Madison University, joined the University faculty in 2010. Dr. Cohen established the Cohen Center of Technical Humanism at JMU, building on the foundation of the graduate program in Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communication. Prior to his service at JMU, Dr. Cohen was William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of English at the University of Virginia (UVA) beginning in 1968. Between 1952 and 1967, he taught Philosophy and English at the University of California, Los Angeles. He authored six books, over 140 articles, and founded New Literary History: A Journal of Theory and Interpretation at UVA in 1969. This journal remains the preeminent journal of its kind in the world. Dr. Cohen built a robust study library over the course of his life, donating all of these books to JMU upon his death in 2016. The bulk of the library included books related to literary theory, religion, English and American history, and primarily English-language literature titles. The collection also contained reference books about these topics, as well as reference books about travel and health. The bulk of reference books were retained by the Cohen estate. Limited issues of journals were also retained by the estate. New Literary History Journal issues published during his time as editor or containing an article written by Dr. Cohen were retained. An inventory of all donated items, with titles retained by JMU, identifiable by the cataloging note “Gift of Dr. Ralph Cohen: Study Library Collection”, is located in Special Collections.
