"The eldest son of Mary and G.W.J. De Renne, Wymberley Jones De Renne became a more noted collector [of materials relating to the state's past] than either of his parents were. He gathered his Georgia library beginning in the 1890s, upon returning to Savannah after spending much of his life in Europe. His library comprised mainly historical works, supplemented by a large collection of Georgia governmental and institutional publications, legal codes, digests, session laws, maps, pamphlets, and newspapers. To preserve his collection and make it easily accessible to scholars, De Renne built a classical fireproof library building near Wormsloe House in 1907." - "De Renne Family."
