This volume announces the availability of the papers of Theodore M. Berry in the Archives and Rare Books Library. Berry (1905-2000) was the first African American mayor in Cincinnati, served the Lyndon B. Johnson presidential administration in civil rights programs, and was an active attorney for the NAACP. The Berry papers, acquired by the UC Libraries many years ago, were able to be fully processed through a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission of the National Archives. The materials are now available for research and teaching.
This issue also includes stories about the Preservation Lab jointly run by the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County and the UC Libraries; the “Life of the Mind” lecture series; a donor profile of Milton Orchin, UC distinguished professor emeritus of chemistry, on why he came to love the library; and much more.
Source is available in print around the various libraries and online.
