Year Established 1986

About The Fund

The gift of Mrs. Deknatel to establish a fund in memory of her husband. The income from this endowment may be used by the Fine Arts Library to purchase books and other materials on the history of art since the French Revolution. At the request of the donor, the terms of the fund were broadened to include the purchase of modern facsimile editions of illuminated manuscripts, which Fred began some time ago, in memory of Wilhelm Koehler, as well as purchases in the period of Fred's special interest, late nineteenth and twentieth century.
