R.O.Dougan

1931

From a site relating to Welsh photography:

R. O. Dougan

Born in Illford, England, Dr. Robert Ormes Dougan studied at University College, London, and Trinity College, Dublin. Dr. Dougan accepted the newly created post as Librarian of Trinity College where he developed an interest in the Book of Kells. A chance meeting with Henry Huntington resulted in his appointment as Librarian at the Huntington Library in 1958 until his retirement to Santa Barbara in 1972. It was from him that NLW photograph albums 1 & 2 were acquired by the National Library of Wales in 1954.
