The Bowlus Comic Book Collection
The William Morton Bowlus Collection includes more than 7,000 comic books, many from the “Silver Age” (late 1950s and 1960s), and related materials. Bowlus, an LSU alumnus, began collecting comic books in grade school and continued until his untimely death in his late 20’s. The collection was donated to the LSU Libraries by his mother, Mrs. Martha Bowlus, to honor his memory and preserve a collection he loved. The Bowlus Collection offers a wealth of graphic art and storytelling from a formative period in American cultural history.
