Stu Daultrey was a lecturer in what was then the UCD Department of Geography. His particular interest was climatology and he produced various works based on his research, including one on the weather conditions during the Spanish Armada! He was also a keen cricket lover, with his own website (“Stu’s Cricket Watch”) and Twitter feed.
Stu passed away last December. His wife Carol approached UCD Library about donating his personal book collection to UCD, which had been his wish. This donation of approximately 1,800 items had been collected by Stu since his retirement and covers all aspects of the environment, from meteorology to economics, as well as books on history, architecture and art history.
The Collections team are now beginning the work of integrating the donation into our Library collections and catalogue.
