The Blackader Lauterman Library of Art and Architecture originated in the early 1920s with an endowment from the family of the late Gordon Home Blackader, B.Arch. 1906, whose death in World War I terminated a promising career of one of the early graduates of the McGill School of Architecture. In 1947, another endowment was offered to the Library by the family of Dinah Lauterman, a Montreal sculptress.
The Library's holdings comprise over 100,000 volumes, including 2,500 rare books (now housed in the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, McLennan Library Building, 4th floor) and close to 350 current periodical subscriptions.
