PASSER, QUICUM LUDERE ...

LC's readers take the equanimity prize. For two
days last week a frightened sparrow was at large in
the Main Reading Room. While she flew around the
room and hopped from one desk lamp to another,
our readers turned not a hair, so intent were they on
their research. Staff members on duty in the Reading
Room made numerous attempts to catch her, but she
managed to evade her captors every time. Fears were
expressed that she would starve to death if she were
not returned to the outside world.
Finally on Thursday, May 5, the visitor caught a
claw in the folds of a curtain and a certain W. S., in
the division known as S&R, picked her up in a piece
of cheesecloth and took her outside, where he re-
leased her in the shrubbery. The staff in the Main
Reading Room then returned to norman pursuits; the
readers had never left them.

EXHIBIT HIGHLIGHTS HISTORY
COLLECTIONS OF MUSIC DIVISION

"The Music Division: Highlights of 75 Years," an
exhibit on the occasion of the Division's 75th anni-
versary, is on view for an indefinite period in the
northwest corridor and the foyer of the Coolidge
Auditorium, Ground Floor, Main Building.

The Music Division was established on July 1,
1897, as the Department of Music. From its initial
holdings of under 200,000 items the Division's collec-
tions have grown to 4 million items, making the Divi-
sion the most comprehensive music library in the
world, both in quality and quantity.
The exhibit includes examples of holdings in vari-
ous categories in which the Division particularly
excels. Among composers' manuscripts, those of
Schumann's "Spring" Symphony, Bach's Cantata No.
10, and Prokofiev's String Quartet, Op. 50, are repre-
sentative of the holographs of the great masters in the
collections, while Ethelbert Nevin's "The Rosary"
marks the beginning of the systematic effort to
acquire the manuscripts of American composers. Rare
and early imprints are represented by Tinctoris'
Terminorum musicae diffinitorium (ca. 1494), the
first dictionary of music ever printed; the First Book
of Masses, by Jean Mouton, printed by Ottaviano dei
Petrucci, the pioneer music printer, in 1515; and 17th
and 18th century opera librettos from the Albert
Schatz Collection.
Other aspects of the Division's activities chronicled
in the exhibit include those of the Recorded Sound
Section, the Archive of Folk Song, concerts, and the
commissioning of new chamber works. Portraits of
the founders of foundations in the Music Division and
past chiefs of the Division are part of the exhibit,
along with photographs of the Division's quarters and
staff in past years.

Mr. Vassallo's appointment appeared in the LC Infor-
mation Bulletin, March 24, p. 124.]


'GIVING IS AN EMOTIONAL KICK'
Red Cross Bloodmobile Program at LC


"Giving blood is the one thing many of us can do
to help others," say Mrs. Dorothy Clark, Federal
Research Division, who has donated more than 12
gallons during the past 20 years. "It gives donors an
emotional kick."
Mary B. Licari, Subject Cataloging Division, who
has given 11 gallons of blood, has received a commen-
dation from the Civil Service Commission "for this
most generous gift of life [and] of all the gifts that
one can make, giving of oneself is the greatest."


Victor Warner, also of FRD, has participated in the
Library's bloodmobile five times a year since 1950,
donating a total of nine gallons.
Since 1952 library employees have been contrib-
uting about 500 pints of blood each year to the
American Red Cross (ARC). The donated blood may
be used for the National Institutes of Health Platelet
Project for the treatment of leukemia, for a child hit
by a car, for someone undergoing open heart surgery,
or for other needy causes.
Most staff members meet the criteria for giving
blood. Each potential donor is screened to be certain
that giving blood will not in any way harm his health
or the health of the recipient. Generally, a prospec-
tive donor is eligible if he or she is 18 through 65
years of age, weighs more than 1 10 pounds, and is in
good physical condition. Employees under 21 years
of age must present an ARC consent form signed by a
parent.
The ARC bloodmobile visits the Library five times
a year to fill an annual quota of 710 pints; during
recent years, however, it has collected about 430
pints annually or only 65 percent of the goal. Because
the Library's goal is not met, the ARC contacts the
Library for emergency blood about once a week,
according to Mrs. Barbara Khattab, Supervisor of
Health Services in the Employee Relations Office.
Although the amount of blood contributed by staff
members does not match ARC's expenses, the ARC
must pay for the cost of testing, processing, storing,
and transporting blood, not to mention the cost of
beds, one doctor, four nurses, and the coordination
of volunteer clerks. Because the expenses are not met
by donations, there is some concern about Library
employees losing the ARC group program and family
coverage. The plan now entitles every LC employee, a
wife or husband, and children under 18 to an
unlimited amount of blood, at no charge for the
blood itself when it is furnished by the ARC, even
when the employee has not given or cannot give
blood at the Library. Should the Library be dropped
from participating in the National Blood Program,
only donating staff members would be able to draw
on the Red Cross Blood Bank for blood replacement
for themselves and their families.
Employee recipients like Leon W. Seidner, Person-
nel Operations Officer, who received 14 units this
past year, know the importance of life saving blood
and no longer take it for granted. Mr. Seidner states
"all that was necessary was to call the Supervisor of
Health Services in LC to make arrangements for com-
plete coverage."


208







May 12, 1972


LC donors may be granted a maximum of four
hours excused absence, with supervisory approval,
which covers travel time, time spent giving blood, and
rest and recuperation immediately following. The
four hours applies to employees who travel to the
ARC Center, 2025 E St., N.W., to donate emergency
blood and to employees donating at the Library.
The need for blood is urgent at all times. Any ques-
tions concerning eligibility or physical and medical
history screening can be answered by telephoning
Marjorie Brothers, Secretary of Health Services, on
ext. 6053.


LC HOLDS FIRST OF FIVE SYMPOSIA ON
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION MAY 5-6

"The Development of a Revolutionary Mentality"
was explored in a Library of Congress Symposium on
the American Revolution Friday and Saturday, May 5
and 6. The first of five symposia made possible by a
grant from The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foun-
dation of Washington, the two-day meeting attracted
about 500 historians, Government officials, and
students to the Coolidge Auditorium and the Whittall
Pavilion, where there was an overflow audience.
The first session on Friday morning got under way
with a welcome from L. Quincy Mumford, Librarian
of Congress. Richard B. Morris, Gouverneur Morris
Professor of History at Columbia University and a
member of LC's Advisory Committee on American
Revolution Bicentennial Programs, as Chairman of
the Symposium then introduced Henry Steele Com-
mager, Professor of History Emeritus at Amherst
College, who spoke on "The American Revolution
and the Enlightenment."
Caroline Robbins, Professor of History Emeritus at
Bryn Mawr College, opened the Friday afternoon
session with a paper on "Revolutionaries and Repub-
licans in the Old World Before 1776." J. H. Plumb of
Christ's College, Cambridge University, commented
on Miss Robbins' paper and the Chairman accepted
additional comments from the floor. The afternoon
session closed with "Corruption and Power in Pro-
vincial America," an address by Richard Bushman,
Professor of History at Boston University, and a
commentary by Edmund S. Morgan, Sterling Profes-
sor of History at Yale University and a member-of
LC's Advisory Committee.
In introducing the speakers at the Saturday session,
Professor Morris pointed out that the liberated
women of the American Revolution, Abigail Adams


and Mercy Otis Warren, would have been pleased, not
only at the progress made in the United States in
achieving women's rights, but also at the presence of
three women on the Library's symposium program.
Pauline Maier, Assistant Professor of History at the
University of Massachusetts, spoke first on "The
Beginnings of American Republicanism, 1765-1776."
Jack P. Greene, Professor of History at The Johns
Hopkins University and also a member of LC's
Advisory Committee, delivered the commentary, and
he was followed by several comments from the floor.
Mary Beth Norton, Assistant Professor of History at
Cornell University, gave the second paper, "The
Loyalist Critique of Republicanism," and Esmond
Wright, former member of Parliament and Director,
Institute for United States Studies at the University
of London, commented.
The Library of Congress plans to publish later in
1972 the proceedings of the symposium, including
the five papers and the four commentaries.
On Friday evening Mrs. Morris Cafritz joined Mr.
and Mrs. Mumford in welcoming to a reception in the
Great Hall the symposium participants, representa-
tives of Washington's official and diplomatic com-
munities, and other distinguished guests at the
symposium.

English Defenders of American Freedoms,
1774-1778. Compiled by Paul H. Smith, American
Revolution Bicentennial Office, Library of Congress.
1972. (230 p.) For sale by the Superintendent of
Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Wash-
ington, D.C. 20402, at $2.75 a copy.
English Defenders is a collection of six rare and
neglected pamphlets reprinted to broaden historical
interest in the intellectual sources of American
patriot resistance in the 1770's. For historians, the
pamphlets provide insight into the breadth and
quality of pro-American sentiment among prominent
figures in England. American Revolutionary leaders
exhibited uncommon interest in this body of political
literature, as the pamphlets circulated widely and
went through numerous American editions. The
patriots drew inspiration from the authors of such
tracts, whose publications confirmed that respected
public figures in England believed in the Justice of
the American cause and the arbitrariness of the
policies of the King's ministers. Although the Ameri-
cans made great use of the writings of their English
defenders, few historians have seriously studied this
body of literature or evaluated its impact in America.
English Defenders was compiled by Paul H. Smith
of the Library's American Revolution Bicentennial
Office, who has provided a general introduction to
the volume, as well as brief surveys of the work of
each author and annotations to the individual pam-
phlets. The fourth of the Library's publications for
the Bicentennial of the American Revolution, it is
part of the Library's program to publicize and make
available primary materials pertinent to the study of
the era. The texts of the pamphlets reprinted in this
volume were taken from the original editions in the
collections of the Library of Congress, with the
exception of Catharine Macaulay's Address, taken
from the text in the Library Company of Philadel-
phia.

STAFF NEWS

DEATH OF FORMER STAFF MEMBER
J. Edgar Hoover, who died May 2 at the age of 77,
had been for so long with the Federal Bureau of
Investigation of which he was the first and only direc-
tor, that many people thought his entire career had
been spent there or in the Department of Justice. His
first job on leaving school, however, was in the
Library of Congress. Beginning about 1912 and con-
tinuing while he earned in night classes a B.A. (1916)
and an M.A. (1917) from George Washington Univer-
sity, he was employed as an assistant in the Classifica-
tion Section of the Catalogue Division, one of the 15
divisions which, with the Copyright Office, then
made up the Library.

Cormier, Pvt. Robert B. Broadus, and (partly hidden) Sgt. Sylvester

In 1917 Mr. Hoover transferred to the Department
of Justice as a messenger in the files section and
began his career in law enforcement. Members of the
Library's Special Police Force were among the thou-
sands of Government employees and citizens from all
walks of life who paid their respect to his memory as
his body lay in state in the Capitol Rotunda on
Wednesday, May 3.

RETIREMENT
Mrs. Gladys James retired on April 7 after almost
30 years of service in the Library, all in the Buildings
Services Section of the Building Management Office.
A long-time resident of Washington, D.C., Mrs.
James attended the Germantown, Md., high school.
Mrs. James came to the Library in January 1943 as
a Janitor and was promoted to a Stack Cleaner posi-
tion in 1955, the position she held on her retirement.
She worked in both the Annex and Main Buildings
and received an "outstanding" rating in special
commendation for her superior performance.
While employed with the Library, Mrs. James also
worked at the U.S. Department of Agriculture cafe-
teria from 1943 to 1950.
Mrs. James was presented a purse by her friends
and co-workers who will long remember her friendly
and cheerful manner.

STAFF ACTIVITIES
John P. Balys of the Slavic and Central European
Division delivered a paper entitled "Baltic Informa-
tion Sources in the Library of Congress" at the
Second Baltic Information Conference of North


America. The conference was held
April 15 and 16 at New Carrollton,
Md., and was attended by some 200
Baltic scholars and guests.
On April 28, Thomas C. Brackeen,
Coordinator of the Equal Opportu-
nity Program, spoke to staff mem-
bers of the MARC Editorial Office,
about the evolution of the equal
opportunity concept in the Library,
the principal problem areas of equal
opportunity, and the aims of the
Equal Opportunity Program. Mr.
Brackeen was introduced to the staff
by Barbara Roland, Chief of the
MARC Editorial Office. The meeting
Capt. John W. ended with a question and answer
C. Morton. session.
Michael Katz, Administrative Offi-
cer of the Information Systems office, was inter-

ANNOUNCEMENT
Kathryn Ann Kontak and Leland J. Blair were
married on Saturday, April 29, in the Arlington, Va.,
home of her parents. Mrs. Blair is a Loan Reference
Specialist in the Loan Division and Mr. Blair is an
attorney with Keller and Heckman law firm in
Washington.

NEW REFERENCE WORKS

Three recent additions to the reference collections
of the Science Reading Room are the Catalog of the
Library of the Marine Biological Laboratory and the
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole,
Mass. (Z881.L72 1971); the Oceanographic Index-
Author Cumulation 1946-1970 (Z6004.P6S43 1971);
and the Dictionary Catalog of the Princeton Univer-
sity Plasma Physics Laboratory Library, Firestone
Library, Princeton University, (Z7144.P5P73 1970).
All three were published by G. K. Hall & Co. of
Boston.
The Catalog of the Marine Biological Laboratory is
in 12 volumes. Eleven volumes are devoted to an
author catalog covering 12,000 books and mono-
graphs, 138 expeditions, and nearly 300,000 journal
articles; volume 12 is a journal catalog listing over
4,000 periodical literature holdings. Because the com-
plete works of many scientists are included, the cata-
log may be used as a bibliographic tool. The major
subjects covered are biology, zoology, botany, physi-
ology, microbiology, medicine, physics, chemistry,
mathematics, geology, meteorology, geophysics,
fisheries, and oceanography.
Supplementing the Catalog is the Oceanographic
Index, compiled by Mary Sears, a senior scientist in
the biology department, Woods Hole Oceanographic
Institution and the American editor for Deep Sea
Research since its inception. The 58,600 cards in the
author cumulation-many in Dr. Sears' own hand-
writing-have been reproduced in three volumes with
approximately 29 cards per page. The Index is Dr.
Sears' personal cumulative selection of articles on
basic marine research and entries frequently include
annotations on the character of the article, the com-
prehensiveness of its bibliography, and the nature of
the work performed.
The Dictionary Catalog covers research literature
accessioned for the Princeton Plasma Physics Labora-
tory, which was established for the Project Matter-
horn program in fusion research in 1952. The
laboratory's work was declassified in 1958, and, in
1961, was expanded to include basic research in


plasma physics, astrophysics, and space physics;
studies in controlled fusion were also broadened. The
laboratory's collection provides comprehensive cover-
age of the literature in these areas, principally in tech-
nical journals and reports, with a small fraction in
book form. About 15,000 journal articles, reports,
dissertations, and English translations of foreign arti-
cles have been fully cataloged with abstracts,
although microfiche reports are minimally cataloged.
The catalog's four volumes contain about 62,000 card
images arranged alphabetically in dictionary form, so
that each report may be located by author, issuing
agency, report number, and subject, and each book or
article by author and subject. Some 80 subject head-
ings, such as cesium plasma, microwaves, stellarators,
and wave scattering, are included. [Catherine I. Bahn]

FIAF to Publish Cinema Index
The International Federation of Film Archives
(FIAF) is compiling an index in English to articles
and reviews published this year. Sixty-one leading
international film periodicals have been selected for
indexing as serious contributions to the literature of
the countries in which they are issued and as likely to
contain material of lasting value from an historical,
aesthetic, or critical point of view. The list includes
Sight and Sound, Iskusstvo Kino, Cahiers du Cinema,
and Film Quarterly; new publications are evaluated
and added to the index if they meet the criteria.
The entries compiled by member archives in the
countries where the periodicals are published are
edited by the Danish Film Museum in Copenhagen
and issued on index cards. Articles are indexed by
original film titles, personalities, and subjects, and are
fully annotated for content. Film reviews and book
reviews are also indexed. Each entry provides author,
title, name of publication, volume number, inclusive
page numbers, and whether illustrated. The flexible
format allows entries to be filed by film title, person-
ality, subject, and book review or to be interfiled in
one alphabetical sequence.
Cards are edited and mailed by air several times a
week. In most cases the cards for overseas publica-
tions will be received in the United States before the
periodicals themselves. It is estimated that there will
be approximately 6,000 cards in 1972.
The indexing service was established for member
archives in FIAF and a very limited number of sub-
scriptions is being offered to others. Each subscrip-
tion will include two publications, Guidelines for
Filing and List of Subject Headings; the subscription
price for all cards issued in 1972 is $325. Subscrip-
tions may be sent to Karen Jones, Det Danske Film-
museum, Store Sondervoldstraede, 1419 Copenhagen
K, Denmark. Inquiries should be addressed to Brenda
Davies, The National Film Archive, 81 Dean St.,
London W.1, England.
The R. R. Bowker Co. will publish the 1972 index
in book form in the spring of 1973 and has plans to
publish successive annual volumes.


Canadian Newsletter Published
The Research and Planning Branch of the National
Library of Canada has begun publication of a news-
letter, Accessible, to highlight developments of inter-
est to the Canadian library community. The first issue
announces that it will carry reports of studies and
surveys made by the Branch's three divisions, Systems
Development Division, Library Documentation
Centre, and Resources Development Division, and
information about computerized library systems
developed in other countries, information which
might not be available through normal channels or
whose acquisition requires international governmental
cooperation.
The newsletter's cover design is an unusual and
successful representation of the merger of new tech-
nology with traditional library processes. Accessible,
which will be published irregularly, may be obtained
from Grover C. Burgis, Director of the Research and
Planning Branch, National Library of Canada, Otta-
wa, Ontario.
