An important donation to the University of Oxford


A large part of the private collection of the late Mr. Paul Bergne, a former British diplomat and Senior Associate Member of St. Antony’s College, has been donated to the University of Oxford. The donation principally covers historical and contemporary materials on Central Asia, but also covers Soviet history and the former Soviet states more broadly. English-language books have been received by St Antony’s College, while the majority of the materials in Russian and other languages will be kept at the Bodleian Library.
