History / Biographical Note
Biographical / Historical
This collection of photographs of librarians was transferred to RBML when the School of Library Service was closed in 1992. A good bit of the collection appears to have been assembled at the New York State Library School, Albany and presumably was part of the collection brought to Columbia in 1926, when the Albany school was merged into the new School of Library Service.
