James D. Hart with Berkeley's copy of the Shakespeare First Folio.
Photograph, 3 May 1973.

Hart had been a supporter of the university library's Rare Books and Special Collections Department before he became involved with Bancroft. He was instrumental in acquiring a copy of the 1623 first folio edition of Shakespeare's works as the Library's 2,000,000th book in 1955. Later, he would oversee the incorporation of the department into Bancroft.
