O. A. JENISON BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION  

   Joel also had some information related to Michael Sullivan's 
   search for volumes from the library of O. A. Jenison:  

   "I do not know where any of Jenison's books may be (I have 
   none in my library).   I do, however, know a few things about 
   Mr. Jenison.  His full name was Orien Austin Jenison, and his 
   life dates were May 22, 1823 to August 6, 1895.  He spent 
   most of his life in Lansing, Michigan.  Jenison's coin collection 
   was auctioned by W. Elliot Woodward in his sale of June 
   22-23, 1881.  Until the opening of the Breslin Center in the late 
   1980's, the basketball arena of Michigan State University was 
   known as Jenison Field House, in honor, I believe, of Orien's 
   son.  I wrote about all of this, and more in my Printer's Devil 
   column in The Asylum, for Fall of 1994.  Good luck in finding 
   other pieces of Jenison's library."
