The Pietermaritzburg campus library has been left a large sum of money by the late Elizabeth Paterson who was once head of the English department on the campus. The bequest stipulates the purchase of 'classics of English literature during the period 1300 AD and 1950 AD in book form'. The bequest will be useful for bolstering various modules particularly that of the English novel, will help fill gaps in the library collection and buy more recent editions of texts.
