Library Heinz Polzer/Drs P

In 2017, the Leeskabinet received a bequest from the Stichting Het Heen- en Weerschap consisting of the library of Heinz Polzer, the poet and songwriter who was well known under his stage name Drs. P.

Heinz Polzer graduated from the Netherlands School of Economics in 1948 was active in the Rotterdam Student Corps. His library is a true working library, reflecting his career. It also contains special editions inscripted by fellow writers, which Polzer collected over time. Humour in literature and culture is a focus within the Leeskabinet's collection, to which the library of Drs. P is an excellent addition.
