Jeffrey D. Keil, Wharton '65, a Library Overseer, donated an important collection of materials on early Latin American history and culture, in memory of his father, Sydney S. Keil, College '33.

At the same time, he created the Sydney S. Keil Collection Fund, which was immediately augmented by gifts from Sydney Keil's many friends and admirers. The fund is used to acquire additional materials on Latin American history for the Annenberg Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
