This narrative follows Charles Ficke and the mystery surrounding his collection of books, currently being housed in Special Collections of the library. I’m talking to two librarians with a special interest in Charles Ficke and his collection. The intriguing books tell a story of Ficke’s travels and provide clues to how these books came to be at the University of Iowa.
