Philip George Munro Book Endowment Fund
Established in March 2008, the Philip George Munro Book Support Fund was established by a Wright State University faculty member in memory of her father – a lifelong reader and book lover – to benefit the Wright State Department of English Language and Literatures. Proceeds from the endowed fund are used to purchase British contemporary fiction which is made a permanent part of the Wright State University Libraries collections. Emphasis is placed on titles that received literary prizes, such as The Man Booker, Costa, and Orange Prizes, and well-reviewed works from the New York Times' Literary Supplement and the Guardian/Observer book review. Title suggestions are also accepted from the Department of English Language and Literatures' faculty and the University Libraries' staff.
