Danish existentialist religious philosopher. 459 books, pamphlets, and journals dealing with Kierkegaard, originally in the library of Dr. Walter Lowrie '90. The collection was catalogued during the spring of 1985; records are in the Library's online catalogue.

An index of the Lowrie materials is on cards prepared by Donald Fox. At present, the cards can be found with other special files in the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections (in the cabinet below the Kane Collection).

The strength of the Lowrie Collection is not in first editions. (It has only eight out of a possible 30+ such editions.) The strength of the Collection is in 20th-century material.
