A notable collection 

At the upcoming Edgar Awards on the 29th of April (which yours truly will be attending for a third straight year) the Ray and Pat Brown collection of popular culture studies at Bowling Green University will receive a Raven Award for "commitment to preserve mystery fiction through a formidable and constantly growing collection of detective mystery novels and manuscripts."

I'll say. The collection houses an amazing variety of books, magazines (8500 issues and counting) and other items related to detective, mystery and crime fiction. Simply put, it's a treasure trove for the fan, the collector, and the scholar. No wonder the Mystery Writers of America is recognizing Bowling Green and the collection it houses. Those fortunate enough to sift through the archives are lucky ones, indeed.
