Francis J. O'Kelley, American-born local historian, collector and bibliographer. The collection contains material covering Irish history, local history, and especially Irish printing and printing relating to Ireland, 17th-19th centuries, with particular emphasis on pamphlets.
The strength of this collection lies in the fact that many of these pamphlets are scarce.
