|Abstract: ||Examines Scottish library philanthropists in the nineteenth and early twentieth
centuries, a key period in the development of the public library service.
Utilizing the technique of prosopography, which goes beyond recounting basic
biographical details and considers individuals as part of an identifiable group,
the article provides an insight into the lives of eleven people (nine men and
two women) who were involved in gifting money, land or support towards
the establishment and maintenance of public libraries in eight towns and
hundreds of villages throughout Scotland.|
