November 17, 1972

November 23 is the 100th anniversary of the birth
of one of the Library's great benefactors, Dannie N.
Heineman, a prominent American industrialist whose
international business and scientific career was pri-
marily centered in Europe. He was born in Charlotte,
North Carolina, in 1872, and died in New York City
on January 31, 1962. Forced out of Europe by the
Nazi onslaught, he returned to the United States at
the outbreak of the second World War. Here he estab-
lished the Heineman Foundation for Research,
Educational, Charitable, and Scientific Purposes, Inc.,
which, before and after Mr. Heineman's death, has
enabled the Music Division to acquire a notable col-
lection of rarities otherwise far beyond its reach.
Mr. Heineman was an ardent music lover and a
bibliophile of impeccable taste. He appreciated evi-
dence of creative effort, erudition, and cultural
enrichment. Knowing his broad interest in art and
Poetry Program Scheduled for Monday
Poets Samuel Allen and Ned O'Gorman will read
from and discuss their work on Monday, Novem-
ber 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the Coolidge Auditorium.
Josephine Jacobsen, the Library's Consultant in
Poetry, will moderate the discussion. No tickets
are required.

literature, the Music Division has utilized the assis-
tance of the Heineman Foundation over the years to
obtain, among many items, rare books, holograph
music, autograph letters, early music imprints, and
scarce librettos. The Heineman Foundation Collec-
tion in the Library of Congress is an enviable assem-
blage rich in research value and frequently spectacular
in visual appeal.
At the centennial of his birth the Library of Con-
gress is happy to honor him and to express again its
gratitude to the foundation that bears his name.

On Friday evening, November 24, the Gertrude
Clarke Whittall Foundation in the Library of Con-
gress will sponsor a concert of chamber music by the
New York Woodwind Quintet. The members of this
ensemble are Thomas Nyfenger, flute; Ronald Rose-
man, oboe; David Glazer, clarinet; Arthur Weisberg,
bassoon; and Ralph Froelich, French horn. Their pro-
gram will include Variations on Mozart's "La ci
darem la mano" (from Don Giovanni) by Ludwig van
Beethoven; Quartet in C major for woodwinds by
Arthur Berger; Quintet in E minor, Op. 67, No. 2 by
Franz Danzi; and Quintet by Claude Paul Taffanel.
This program will feature the world premiere of Trios
and Fantasy for Woodwind Quintetby Ezra Laderman.

The Librarian and Mr. Kuiper


Aileen E. Sundstrom, Secretary in the Central Ser-
vices Division, was presented a 20-year Federal Ser-
vice Award pin on October 31 by Mrs. Ida F. Wilson,
the Division Chief.
A native of Willowbrook, Calif., Miss Sundstrom
began her career with the Federal government in
1952 as a secretary with the Department of the Army
and during the next 14 years worked for various
Department of Defense agencies, including the Office
of the Assistant Secretary for Defense.
Miss Sundstrom came to the Library in June 1966
when she began working in her present position in the
former Office of the Secretary.
On October 18, John B. Kuiper, Head of the
Motion Picture Section of the Prints and Photographs
Division. received a Superior Service Award in the
Librarian's office.
Mr. Mumford presented the award "in recognition
of [Mr. Kuiper's] leadership of the Library's pro-
grams to collect and preserve motion picture films,
especially during the past few years of the extraordi-
nary growth of this program. Under [his] leadership
the finanical support has increased, both from private
and public funds, with a consequent increase in staff
and in the complexity of operation. [Mr. Kuiper's]
direction of the installation of a laboratory for
motion picture conversion has made it possible for
the Library of Congress to accomplish work not
possible elsewhere in the country, and to convert
significant footage of deteriorating film with techni-
cal competence and at a reasonable cost."

The Librarian further noted that "through [Mr.
Kuiper's] devotion to duty and [his] active and
capable leadership, the Motion Picture Section has
accomplished other difficult tasks without serious
error or loss of morale, despite the physical separa-
tion of the motion picture collection. [Mr. Kuiper's]
diplomacy, extensive professional acquaintanceship,
and ability to organize complex data have made
[him] a key person in the American Film Institute
cooperative effort and in the Library's role in the
International Federation of Film Archives."
In ceremonies held in the Librarian's office in
October, 26 staff members of the Motion Picture Sec-
tion of the Prints and Photographs Division received a
Meritorious Service Award in recognition of their
work during the expansion and change of the past
few years. The staff members recognized in the award
were Maurel L. Allen, Vivian D. Armstrong, Louis F.
Arnold, Mrs. Harriet W. Aveney, Kathryn D. Baker,
Zachary J. Balian, Warren R. Britt, Rudolph J.
Buchel, Donald E. Crow, Michael L. Godwin, Bennie
R. Goodman, Nancy J. Haldeman, Mrs. Rita R. Hor-
witz, Carolyn Jo Keith, Holger C. Kjeldsen, Michael
P. Kling, Calvin L. Morman, David L. Parker, David L.
Reese, Mrs. Barbara S. Rowland, Patrick J. Sheehan,
Paul C. Spehr, Samuel T. Tyler, James M. Wall,
Pearline Ward, and Lucious B. Waters.
Mr. Mumford noted that "the professionalism and
dedication of the staff are amply attested to by the
continuing efforts to maintain and improve service at
a time when the motion picture collections experi-
enced a dramatic and sudden growth as the result of
the joint commitment of the Library and the Ameri-
can Film Institute, and at a time of internal shifting
and rearrangement of offices and collections."
The Librarian noted that "the number of readers
served, the number of films preserved, and the Sec-
tion's participation in national and international film
scholarship have increased significantly in a few short
years. The response of [the Motion Picture Section]
to these changes [has been] not only commendable
but gratifying."

Mrs. Eilene Galloway, Senior Specialist in Inter-
national Relations of the Foreign Affairs Division in

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
housed at Princeton University, the seminar dealt
with the philosophy and concepts of techniques
requiring the use of a large-scale, advanced memory
computer, such as the ASC Computer, in the develop-
ment of theoretical methods for the modeling of the
global atmosphere and the world's oceans.
On October 16-17, ISO sponsored a Program
Debugging Techniques Course as part of the Automa-
tion Training Program. The course was conducted by
H. Tom Littlejohn and Jerry C. Saunders, both of

programmers and analysts in the use of IBM OS soft-
ware and proper techniques for debugging programs,
and the reading of OS dumps.
On October 27, ISO sponsored a briefing entitled
"Introduction to the IBM HASP System." The brief-
ing, a function of the Automation Training Program,
was conducted by Mr. Littlejohn to provide an intro-
duction to HASP as it will be implemented in the

Australian National Bibliography Published
The first cumulative issue of the Australian
National Bibliography (ANB), produced by the
ANB/MARC System, has been published by the
National Library of Australia. It cumulates the Janu-
ary through August 1972 monthly issues. ANB is a
classified catalog of books, pamphlets, serials, and
government publications issued in Australia and of
items associated with Australia published overseas.
The catalog is arranged by the Dewey Decimal Classi-
fication System with an author, title, and series index
and a subject index. Terms used in the latter corre-
spond to the scope of the appropriate Dewey class
number and not necessarily to the subject headings
assigned to the particular work. Beginning in 1973
the National Library of Australia plans to issue ANB
weekly with an author and title index and to
cumulate it monthly with a subject index added.
Three additional cumulations during each year are
planned: January-April, May-August, and January-
The entries in the classified sequence contain com-
plete cataloging and classification data, following the
Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, North American

Text; Subject Headings Used in the Dictionary Cata-
logs of the Library of Congress, 7th ed.; and Dewey
Decimal Classification, 18th ed. These standards have
been modified slightly to reflect the needs of Austra-
lian users. In addition, the bibliographic descriptions
incorporate the provisions of the International Stan-
dard Bibliographic Description (ISBD).
Subscriptions to the Australian National Bibliog-
raphy may be placed with the National Library of
Australia, Parkes Place, Canberra A.C.T. 2600,
Australia. The full service subscription rate for 1973
is $25 Australian.
