Special Collections

The Fred Lee Special Collection at AdventHealth University

Words are powerful.  Authors carefully craft text, using just the right words to convey specific meanings.  Individually, the nearly 300 books in the Fred Lee Special Collection fulfill this goal.  All together, they served as inspiration for Lee in the writing of the award-winning book, If Disney Ran Your Hospital.  But, the surprising aspect of this collection is the incredible value Fred Lee added to his books by writing copious notes, questions, and underlines in the covers and within the texts.  His input involves the reader in a new dialog with the work, which creates an unexpected reading experience. 

This collection is a tremendous gift for the R.A. Williams Library, and is in the process of being scanned so that Lee’s writings are available in the Library Digital Archives.

The collection may be viewed in person in the R.A. Williams Library located in the General Education building on the AdventHealth University campus in Orlando, FL.
