Now and again a book relating to library interests comes to hand that deserves special notice, and such a work is the New York State Library School Register, 1887–1926, which was published by the New York State Library School Association, Inc., in 1959. We might have received a copy for notice earlier, but Mr. Karl Brown, the Editor of the volume, writes that he “had not thought of sending copies outside the States feeling that it might be considered a provincial book, as London sometimes tells us!” Mr. Brown has been much too bashful. We personally were most happy to receive a copy from him following an enquiry the nature of which will be explained later. In this article we begin by reviewing the book, but at a later stage we indicate by a little study of one person the unusual interest of the work to librarians in terms of library history and of the movements of librarians from one land to another.
