Description

Marsha Pollak and the Confederates of Wisteria Lodge welcomed the Sub-Librarians to the 30th (Irregular) annual meeting in Atlanta. The traditional toasts were given, and we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the publication of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Tim Johnson, Curator of Special Collections and Rare Books at the University of Minnesota Libraries, spoke on "The Hound Underground: Sherlockian Exploits in a State-of-the-Art Library Facility." He talked about both the renowned holdings of the Sherlock Holmes Collection, focusing on the Hound, and the Elmer L. Andersen Library's arrangement of underground storage and research facilities.

Courtesy of Jon Lellenberg, a reproduction of Elmer Davis' "A Message to American Librarians," about the continuing importance of libraries in war-time, was distributed to each attendee. Elmer Davis, noted Sherlockian and author of the Baker Street Irregulars' Constitution and Buy-Laws, was director of the Office of War Information in Washington, D.C. The message was originally published in the Bulletin of the American Library Association on October 1, 1942.

Thanks to Bill Leonard, Kitty Klein and Kay Pinckney for local assistance.
