These two books, A Virtuous Woman: Sex Life in Relation to the Christian Life by Reverend Oscar Lowry (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Zondervan, 1943) and Sex Manual for Those Married or About to Be (Augusta, Georgia: Southern Medical Supply Co., 1945), are from Alfred Kinsey's original collection, which he donated to the institute in 1947. The size and scope of the Kinsey Institute's library and special collections are a tribute to Alfred Kinsey's dedication to his research and his vision and passion for collecting.
