Jim McMillan Collection
The Jim McMillan Collection of European History
The founding Head of the (then) School of History and Classics, Professor McMillan was the Richard Pares Professor of History from 1999, as well as the Director of the Centre for the Study of the Two World Wars. As a researcher of Modern French history, he was originally a pioneer in the fields of women's and gender history, and worked on the religious history of modern France and the French culture wars. This is reflected in his book collection which was donated by his family after his death.
