Viktor Frankl Library and Memorabilia collection was established to contain all of Frankl's writings and include all known books and articles about the psychotherapist and logotherapy. After the completion of the GTU Library building in 1987, the collection was transferred to the GTU Archives with books either put into rare or the general circulation.
Frankl’s connection with the Bay Area is due to two seminary professors who worked with him in Vienna during the summer. Both Robert Leslie from Pacific School of Religion and Aaron Ungersma of San Francisco Theological Seminary embraced Frankl’s theories as a better approach to pastoral counseling. Leslie became particularly involved in promoting Frankl’s work and maintaining a library for greater study.
