Endowment Funds and Special Projects
- Alan Aylesworth Macnaughton Endowment for Canadian Legal Materials - The late Senator Alan A. Macnaughton created an endowment for the McGill Law Library, the income to be used to buy legal materials. Senator Macnaughton was a Speaker of the House of Commons, Founder and Honorary Chairman of the Canadian World Wildlife Fund, Counsel at Martineau Walker, and a member of the Faculty of Law Advisory Board.
- John P. Humphrey United Nations Collection Endowment - In 2003 the Law Library received a legacy of $330,000 from the estate of John Peters Humphrey, B.Comm.(1925), B.A.(1927), B.C.L.(1929), PhD.(1945). The endowment is to purchase material on the United Nations, with a special emphasis on Human Rights.
- A.H. Mettarlin Endowment - In 1987 the Law Library received a legacy of $375,000 from the estate of Aaron H. Mettarlin, B.C.L.(1926), a leading notary in Montreal for over fifty years. The Mettarlin Endowment is used to purchase books and serials relating to the basic undergraduate collection in the Law Library.
- Other Library Endowments - Annual gifts from graduates and friends of the Faculty contribute significantly to the development of the library collections. For example, as a 25th Anniversary Project the Class of 1969 raised funds to substantially expand the Library's network capabilities providing greater access to a variety of information in electronic form. In addition, the Library has received a number of special endowments over the years which include such funds as the F. R. Scott Endowment in Constitutional Law, the International Law Endowment Fund, the Law Library Serials Endowment, and the Marlene and Joel King Fund for Jewish Law.
