The King R. Johnson, Jr. History Collection

A gift from the family of the late King R. Johnson, Jr. of Madison, has greatly enhanced the history holdings of the Millsaps-Wilson Library. Comprised of nearly 4000 volumes, Mr. Johnson's collection is focused on warfare from ancient to modern times. The works include scholarly and popular explorations of many aspects of warfare including not only strategy and logistics, but social, cultural, and political implications as well. In addition to the volumes of military history, the collection also includes maps, works on general history, and a number of books on the Titanic.
