      Fonds consists of material acquired by mystery writer Howard Engel. Most of the fonds consists of books written by Engel, including various editions and languages. Some of the books are signed by Engel and dedicated to members of his family. Most of the books are from Engel’s Benny Cooperman series of detective novels. All 13 books from the series are in the fonds, published between 1980 and 2012, and include The Suicide Murders; The Ransom Game; Murder on Location; Murder Sees the Light; A City Called July; A Victim Must Be Found; Dead and Buried; There Was an Old Woman; Getting Away with Murder; The Cooperman Variations; Memory Book; East of Suez; and The Whole Megillah. Several anthologies that contain Engel’s work are included. Two sketchbooks belonging to Engel are also included, as well as numerous images of Niagara Falls by the Carborundum Company from 1915 to 1927.
