History

The East Asia library at the ROM was founded as the H.H. Mu Far Eastern Library in 1933. In 2017, the H.H. Mu Far Eastern Library was renamed the Bishop White Committee Library of East Asia, in honour of the Bishop White Committee (Friends of East Asia)'s long-standing support and deep commitment to the ROM and the promotion of East Asian art, history, and culture.
