The Tentaroh Inoh Collection at Stony Brook University

The Tentaroh Inoh Collection was dedicated to the Stony Brook University and housed in the Melville Library. The books were donated to Stony Brook University by the late Professor Tentaroh Inoh (1915-2003), renowned historian and collector of rare books. The collection contains more than 70,000 Japanese volumes on history, literature, philosophy, anthropology, archaeology, religion, linguistics, and political science, including numerous reference books. The Inoh Collection has been housed in the Melville Library, Room N4065. The ribbon-cutting dedication ceremony was held on May 21, 2007 in the presence of Professor Inoh's son, Mr. Shizuo Inoh, and formally opened to the public.
