Prof Peter Vassallo donates collection of papers relating to Dun Karm to The University of Malta Library

During a formal presentation held on 27th November at the University Library, Prof Peter Vassallo presented the Library with an interesting collection of family papers relating to Malta’s national poet Dun Karm. The donation will be known as, “The Peter Vassallo’s Collection of Papers relating to Dun Karm”.
The formal presentation took place in the presence of the Pro-Rector Prof Godfrey Baldacchino, the Director of Library Services Mr Kevin J. Ellul, and members of academic and Library staff. The donation serves to shed light on the poet and his work and consists of legal documents, (including Dun Karm’s will and testament, four in all, including his last), correspondence, handwritten poems in Maltese, Italian and English, photographs, account books and ephemera. 

Current and future researchers will greatly benefit from this generous donation to the Library by Prof Peter Vassallo of a much treasured family heirloom. We are most grateful to him for his altruistic gesture.
