    Scope and Content of Collection

    Dr. Fredrick Shroyer was a professor at California State University, Los Angeles who donated his science fiction, fantasy, and horror book collection in 1981. He collected all significant authors from 1890 to 1950 in those genres. A separate gift at a later date was 360 short stories from the 1920s and 1930s in the form of tear sheets in indexed pressboard covers together with runs of thirty-one periodicals from 1897 to 1909. Many of the books have their original dust jackets. The books are fully cataloged and shelved in call number order. The tear sheets and periodicals have not been processed.
