Thomason Gates<
Depicts the Scottish writer and poet Robert Louis Stevenson.

Tom Thomason (1937-2006) was a graduate of Albuquerque High and UNM and a well-known artist and jeweler. He and his wife, educator and children's advocate Jo (Celia) Thomason (1937-2003), were Albuquerque residents and library benefactors. The courtyard gates at Special Collections are based on one of Tom Thomason's designs, and examples of his jewelry may be seen in the corridor between the west reading room and the auditorium.
