Sales From Doheny Library

I am appalled at the thought that the Los Angeles Archdiocese has such low regard for public treasures. I have personally seen the Doheny collection and know that the collection is priceless. The likes of which will never be seen or found again. Just like the ancient Alexandrian Library, this, too, will be lost forever. Its purpose was never fulfilled, just as the Doheny collection's purpose will never be fulfilled. It was unselfishly donated to the people to be used by the people.

As a former student of St. John's Seminary College, I read with interest the article (March 7) regarding the auctioning of the Gutenberg Bible and other pieces of the Doheny collection on exhibit at the seminary. Although I enjoyed viewing the collection many times, I can only say, "bravo" to the archdiocese for this long-overdue decision. The sale, I think, will serve a dual purpose. First, it will generate some much-needed revenue to an underdeveloped seminary system, perhaps increasing not only enrollment but also programs and faculty.
