Thomas B. Lockwood (1873-1947) was a Buffalo attorney who served on the University Council for 28 years.  A legendary book lover, he amassed what was known as the finest collection of rare books, first editions and manuscripts in the region.  The Lockwood family generously contributed $400,000 toward the construction of the original Lockwood Library (now known as Abbott Hall).  The Lockwood Memorial Library name was placed on the new library in recognition of the original endowment.
