William B. Greenlee was a trustee at the Newberry Library and a scholar of Portuguese and Brazilian history. He donated his collection, which today numbers over 10,000 volumes, to the Newberry in 1937. Some of the special items in the collection include periodicals and other collections of documents, biographies, travel pamphlets, and historical accounts of both local and national perspectives of Portugal and Brazil.
