Abram Hoffer Orthomolecular Collection

Hoffer Collection        
The Abram Hoffer Orthomolecular Collection was donated by Abram Hoffer (1917-2009) shortly before his death. Dr. Abram Hoffer, a well-known and somewhat controversial psychiatrist, was born and raised in Saskatchewan. Over the course of his long career, Dr. Hoffer collected a large library of materials relating to his interest in mental health, nutrition, and orthomolecular medicine, which he offered to the University Library at the University of Saskatchewan prior to his death.  The donation of his personal collection, now referred to as the Abram Hoffer Orthomolecular Collection, consists of 1,520 books, of which he authored or co-authored 65 (including translated works and various editions). In addition to the well-known material on the hallucinogens, Dr. Hoffer collected books on a variety of topics including, but not limited to, schizophrenia, nutrition, orthomolecular therapy, psychiatry, cancer, alcoholism, mental illness/disorders, medicine, vitamin therapy, depression, diet therapy, and health.
