In May 1973, York College President Milton G. Bassin donated 495 volumes to the York College Library, most of which were written in either Hebrew or Yiddish, with some also in Aramaic. The books belonged to his father, Max Bassin (who was sometimes referred to as Morris, Moses, or Moshe), who was a noted anthologist of Yiddish poetry.


Since publication of this article, all of the books in the Bassin Collection were cataloged by John Drobnicki, and you can view the records for them in the online catalog. The entire March 2008 issue of Academic Affairs Update is available on the York College website.
