Cesar Nasr Collection

The collection includes published books, personal papers and archival materials by the late Dr. Cesar Nasr, the founder of the Lebanese Ministry of Environment (MOE) and its Minister from 1980 to 1982. The donation includes many of his published books, correspondence with prominent figures, press clippings and documents related to his research and his accomplishments in the field of environment and nature conservation. The collection was donated to the AUB Libraries in July 2013 by Mr. Nasr and his wife. It is of relevance to researchers interested in climate change, nature conservation, social sciences and politics in the region.
