Thompson, John N/A
John Thompson gained his BA from St John's in 1616, and his MA in 1620, becoming a Fellow in the same year. He was Member of Parliament for Cambridge from 1625 to 1626, and served as secretary to John Williams, his fellow Johnian. Thompson gave around twenty volumes to the Library, mainly concerned with European, particularly German, history. All the volumes given by him bear his arms stamped in gold on both covers, and have an inscription bearing his name and the date 1629 on the titlepage.
