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, 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 as a poet and songwriter. The library also has many compilations of essays by fellow writers. It fits in excellently with another focus collection of the Leeskabinet: humour in literature and culture.
