ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

The Wason Collection was bequeathed to Cornell University in 1918 by Charles William Wason. It began as a collection of English-language works on China and the Chinese. Its scope and size have since been greatly enlarged, and it is now the only major East Asian collection in the country to include all Western language materials in the areas covered in a special collection together with the materials in the languages of those areas.
