ELIZABETH STROUP
TO HEAD CRS DIVISION

Elizabeth F. Stroup, a librarian experienced in
public and special library administration and informa-
tion systems technology, has been appointed Chief of
the Congressional Reference Division, Congressional
Research Service, effective May 14. She is, at present,
the only woman to head a division in CRS.
A Library of Congress employee for about half of
the last nine years, Miss Stroup comes to CRS from
the Division for the Blind and Physically Handi-
capped, Reference Department, where, since January
1971, she has been head of the National Collections
Section, the Nation's and perhaps the world's largest
single source of reading materials for the blind and
physically handicapped. In that position in the last
two years, she has directed a staff of 27 in providing
service to 51 regional libraries for the blind and physi-
cally handicapped in all parts of the Nation. National
Collections also dispenses service directly to some
readers in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico,
several other States, and eligible citizens temporarily
abroad, and maintains a National Union Catalog of
materials for the blind and physically handicapped.
Miss Stroup has given frequent on-site consultation
to regional library staffs and, at the request of
regional librarians, has assisted in conducting work-
shops for regional and public librarians in several
States.
As head of the Congressional Reference Division,


Miss Stroup and the staff of 54 that she directs are
responsible for handling, in cooperation with the
other CRS divisions, two-thirds of the requests for

of LC employees on Tuesday through today. Begin-
ning Monday. May 21, all health rooms will be open
to take blood pressures from 2 to 4 p.m. daily. Staff
members with high blood pressure will be counseled
and assisted in obtaining treatment.
Last year more than 20 million Americans had high
blood pressure, also known as hypertension, and for
(0.000 of them the condition was fatal. In addition,
other dcjilis occurred as a result of heart attacks and
kidney failures diseases which are related to high
blood pressure.
Blood pressure varies normally with activity and, in
many people, with tension. Usually a rise returns to
normal quickly but in those "provoked by persistent
..'.,.htological and environmental stresses" it may go
up and stay up.
Dr. Webb notes that many successful treatments
and medicines for hypertension exist and that, in
nearly every case, treatment improves the kidneys,
diminishes signs of heart trouble, and extends the life
of patients. In addition. patients live better, with
fewer strokes, bellei appetites, increased strength,
and freedom from apprehension.
Because high blood pressure alone and in its devel-
.il e .-L.gc, produces few symptoms, many people


who have hypertension are unaware of it. The pro-
gram at LC will be aimed at detecting these persons,
Dr. Webb says.
"We hope to persuade the hidden hypertensives on
the staff to go to their family doctors or clinics for
the evaulation and treatment of their problems," Dr.
Webb explained. "LC Health Services and other staff
will be able to help with counseling, follow-up obser-
vations, and in administering some treatments pre-
scribed by the patient's own physicians."

VIRGINIA DAIKER HONORED FOR WORK IN HISTORIC PRESERVATION

Virginia Daiker, Specialist in American
Architecture in the Library's Prints and
Photographs Division, has been cited by the
National Trust for Historic Preservation for
her "38 years of scholarly dedication to
American architecture" and its preservation.
Mrs. Richard M. Nixon presented the
National Trust's Special Award to Miss
Daiker on May 8, at the Trust's annual
SAwards Luncheon held in the garden of
Decatur House on Lafayette Square in Wash-
S ington. Her unique award, a dog tooth cal-
Scite mounted in silver on a revolving wooden
44 base, was designed by New York jeweler,
Arthur King, to symbolize natural and man-
made environment.
S Miss Daiker, who joined the staff of the
Library in 1935, became one of the initial
participants in the Historic American Build-
ings Survey. The Survey, a cooperative agree-
ment between the National Park Service, the
American Institute of Architects, and the
Library of Congress, was established in
1933, and at that time the Library was designated the repository for the records accumulated.
Speaking of her years of coordinating the HABS operation at the Library, Miss Daiker noted that "there was
and is a lot of challenging work to be done on the Survey [and] I have particularly enjoyed working with
people who are just discovering HABS." Her career has included contributions in architectural history and
preservation and service on national committees, boards, and the National Trust.

home gardens. Miss Stroup started one in her home
near Georgetown. She calls her version "small-scale

packing and she's even done a little mountain
climbing in her home state, Washington. Then when

longtime poetry buff, she attends all the local read-
ings that she can and constantly adds to her growing
collection of the works of modern poets.

May 18, 1973


The Library has combined in one volume lectures
by two quite dilfereni poets, both of whom have
served as Consultants in Poetry to the Library of Con-
gress. "Leftovers: A Care Package" is William Staf-
ford's farewell lecture, presented as he finished his
1970-71 term in May 1971. In it he talks about the
functions of the Poetry Office in the Library and the
"leftover, or residue, or essence not identified"
remaining after one has listed these functions. He
offers as examples of leftovers impressions of encoun-
ters with his visitors during the year-poets from here
and abroad, other writers, teachers, and people just
interested in poetry. His feeling about the year he
illustrates with examples of poetry-his own, one of a
predecessor, Reed Whittemore, and one of Josephine
Jacobsen, who was to succeed him.
"From Anne to Marianne: Some Women in Ameri-
can Poetry" was Josephine Jacobsen's May 1972 lec-
ture, at the end of the first year of her two-year term.
The first woman to hold the Consultantship since
Elizabeth Bishop had been appointed in 1949, she
chose appropriately to talk about American women
poets, looking "at the atmosphere in which they
worked, to attempt to understand a little of its pres-
sures and permissions." This atmosphere was often
undermining; Anne Bradstreet wrote "I am obnox-
ious to each carping tongue/Who says my hand a
needle better fits." By the time Harriet Monroe was
founding the magazine Poetry, however, "the entire
paralyzing structure of the attitude toward women
writers had begun to show cracks, and then gaps."
Women poets today show a wide variety of patterns;
they have rejected, said Mrs. Jacobsen, limitation of
subject matter, of vocabulary, of viewpoint. Her final
quotation was of one of her own poems, "The Poem
Itself" about the freedom of the poem, itself so much
more important than any poet, male or female.
