Pate-Newcomer Luxembourg Collection

One of the largest such collections in the United States, the Pate-Newcomer Collection contains well over 1,500 catalogued items covering all aspects of the people, life, and culture of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. All materials are housed in the Gearhart Reading Room of the Mary Couts Burnett Library at Texas Christian University. While primarily books, the collection includes materials of all kinds: maps, periodicals, pamphlets, government documents, art, photographs, and sound recordings. Most of the material is in Lëtzebuergesch, French, German, or English and was published in the Grand Duchy. A search of the collection in the library’s online public catalog quickly reveals the wide range of material.

The Luxembourg Collection is the result of the cooperative efforts of the late Mr A. M. Pate; his brother, Sebert Pate; Dr James Newcomer, Vice-Chancellor Emeritus of Texas Christian University; and the Library. It was Dr Newcomer, author of a history of the Grand Duchy, who first envisioned the Luxembourg Collection and it has largely been through his efforts that the materials are available for scholars and students.

The Pate-Newcomer Luxembourg Collection is available for use at any time the Mary Couts Burnett Library is open to the public. Special Collections staff can offer reference assistance in using the collection and they can be contacted at (817) 257-7108.

The Luxembourg Collection is made possible through the generosity of the late Mr A. M. Pate; Mrs Joyce Capper; Mr Sebert Pate; and Dr James Newcomer, Vice-Chancellor Emeritus, Texas Christian University.
