Congress has provided $12,000 [Editor's Note: The
Special Announcement issued to the staff on Decem-
ber 11 stated that $20,000 was available. This figure
should have been $12,000.] which will enable the
Library of Congress to start a Library-wide tuition
support program for the last six months of the 1973
fiscal year. These funds are in addition to funds that
departments are currently devoting to the individual
training needs of their staff members.
An important objective of this expanded program is
affirmative action in providing opportunities for
improved job mobility. Therefore, in order to move
forward with this program in the next six months,
support for specific skills training courses, college
courses, or other formal training will be provided,
within funds available, to as many staff members as

(2) Must meet the entrance requirements, if any,
of the facility providing the training.
(3) Must be willing to participate in the training
during off-duty time, if necessary.

Senator B. Everett Jordan, Chairman of the Joint
Committee on the Library and a member of the Joint
Committee since 1959, was honored at a luncheon in
the Whittall Pavilion on December 5. The Librarian,
Deputy Librarian, Assistant Librarian, Department
Directors, and other LC officials as well as William M.
Cochrane, Administrative Assistant to the Senator,
attended the luncheon.
The Librarian paid particular tribute to Senator
Jordan for his understanding and support of the
Library of Congress as well as for his assistance in
obtaining passage of the expanded Depository Librar-
ies Act and the extension of the Books for the Blind
Program to the physically handicapped. In speaking
of the Senator, Mr. Mumford said the "future his-

Richard Franko Goldman has been appointed a
member of the Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge Founda-
tion Committee in the Library of Congress. In this
capacity he succeeds Earl V. Moore, music educator
and administrator, who served as a member of the
Committee since 1956 until he recently retired.
Mr. Goldman, born in 1910, enjoys an enviable
reputation as composer and conductor, and has made
important contributions to music literature and
theory. He is the son of the famed band leader and
conductor, Edwin Franko Goldman. In 1930 he

Holiday Greetings

Seventy-five years ago this Christmas, John Russell Young, then Librarian of Con-
gress, must have thought the year just ending one of unparalleled accomplishment. The
old Library of Congress, after years of hopes and plans, had completed its move into
this splendid building, departments were being organized, and the Library was giving
service to an unprecedented number of readers. The new Library of Congress was very
much in the national spotlight and the staff, in spite of the problems of getting settled
in its new home and deciding how to tackle the arrearages it was discovering, had time
to bask in the glow.
Today, we too can look back on a year of accomplishment, but I know it will be
surpassed in years to come. This magnificent building is now a familiar landmark on
Capitol Hill, bursting at the seams with books and people. Serving a Congress with
national and international responsibilities unknown in 1897 and a population that has
almost tripled in 75 years, we have little time for congratulatory reflection.
Libraries, no matter how they change, are also keepers of traditions. And one of the
traditions I am glad we keep is the celebration of the holiday season together in the
Great Hall-on marble floors now a little worn. Unlike my predecessor of long ago, I
do not see all of you each day of the year; even at Christmas time we are too scattered
here and abroad to exchange personal greetings. I can, however, take this page to tell
all of you how much I appreciate your contribution to the work of the Library in the
past year and to send you the warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas and a peaceful
Happy New Year.

graduated with honors from Columbia University,
and in 1964 Lehigh University bestowed upon him
the honorary degree of doctor of humane letters. He
has taught at the Juilliard School, Princeton Univer-
sity, Columbia University, and New York University.
Since 1969 he has been Director of the Peabody
Conservatory and President of the Peabody Institute
in Baltimore, Md. Among his many distinctions are
the Juilliard Music Foundation Award, the Little
Orchestra Society Award, the Alice M. Ditson Con-
ductor's Award, and the key to the City of New
Orleans. He is a member of the American Musico-
logical Society, the League of Composers, Phi Beta
Kappa, Phi Mu Alpha, and many other organizations.
As a composer Mr. Goldman has written music for
various mediums, large and small; and as an author he
has written on the history of band music, pedagogical
literature, and provided articles for the new Oxford
History ofMusic and Ausik in Geschichte und Gegen-
wart. It would be difficult to find a person more

conversant with contemporary musical trends and
needs or more articulate in translating them into
The Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge Foundation was
established in the Library of Congress by Mrs.
Coolidge in 1925 with an endowment for the promo-
tion and advancement of chamber music through
commissions, public concerts, and festivals.

play as part of the "Recent Major Photographic
Acquisitions" show on exhibit on the Ground Floor,
Main Building, for an indefinite period.
The Look photographs include both black and
white and color prints taken' for the magazine during
its 35-year history by some of the world's leading
photojournalists. The photographs cover events and
people in the United States and around the world
which Look photographers recorded for posterity
with imagination and feeling. Many of the photo-
graphs in the exhibition dwell on the informal aspects
of White House life, among them pictures of Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy and his son, John, walking
hand in hand down an empty corridor; Jacqueline
Kennedy playing with her son and daughter; Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson watching over his grand-
daughter; Lucy Johnson dancing the frug in the Blue
Room; Lady Bird Johnson sitting in a field of blue-
bonnets; and Eleanor Roosevelt rubbing noses with a
Maori woman from New Zealand. Robert Kennedy is
shown with his family on the campaign trail, racing a
dune buggy, and, with his brothers, John and
Edward, walking along the seashore. Among other
notables portrayed in the exhibit are Ernest Heming-
way stalking game in Africa; Fidel Castro giving a
speech; and portraits of Che Guevara, architect Frank
Lloyd Wright, baseball star Jackie Robinson, and
actress Judy Garland.
A series of striking color photographs depict famil-
iar sights in the Capitol city-the White House, the
Capitol dome, the Lincoln Memorial, the Library of
Congress, the internal flame at the Kennedy grave-
site, and the spires of Georgetown University. Look's
fashion photography is represented by a series of
studies of models posed against exotic backdrops in
Afghanistan and Mongolia. Scenes of the Vietnam
conflict, of romantic Ireland, and of buildings and
bridges in New York City are among the other items
in the exhibit.
Presented to the Library on December 17, 1971,
the entire photographic files of Look magazine contain
17 1/2 million black and white negatives, 1 1/2
million color transparencies, 450,000 contact sheets,
and 25,000 movie stills; the collection fills more than
100 five-drawer filing cabinets. [A story on the col-
lection appeared in the December 30, 1971 issue of
the Information Bulletin, pages 733-34.]
In addition to the Look photographs, the major
photographic acquisitions show contains 85 photo-
graphs by Toni Frissell, an independent photographer
whose work has appeared in such magazines as Life,
Vogue, and Sports Illustrated, and 67 photographs by

Arthur Rothstein, now an Associate Editor of Parade
and formerly Director of Photography for Look.
[Stories on the Frissell collection appeared in the
May 27, 1971 (pp. 303-04) and the November 10
(pp. 477 and 479) issues of the Information Bulletin;
articles on the Rothstein collection appeared in the

As a result of the generous support of the Library
staff and the dedication of nearly 200 campaign
workers, the Library has concluded one of its most
successful Combined Federal Campaign drives. Even
while contributions still are being received, the funds
contributed by the staff amounted, as of December
11, to $80,673.99 or 106.3 percent of the quota. Of
the 4,138 Library staff members, 2,080, or 50.2
percent, contributed to the campaign by pledging an
average gift of $38.78.
The following divisions and offices of the Library
reached 100 percent or more of their goals:
Office of the Librarian-the Librarian's immediate
office, including the Executive Assistant's Office,

Supervisors should be consulted by interested staff
members for guidance and counseling on individual
career objectives in the Library, specific courses of
training appropriate to assist them in qualifying for
advancement and attainment of their immediate
career objectives, and the potential availability of
positions for which qualification is desired.
Supervisors will nominate qualified staff members
for specific courses in accordance with the provisions

William G. Thompson, Supervisor of the Stock Unit
in the Card Division, was presented with a 30-year
Federal Service Award pin by William J. Welsh,
Director of the Processing Department, on De-
cember 8.
A native Washingtonian and a graduate of McKinley
High School, Mr. Thompson began working in the
Library's Card Division on December 7, 1942, at the
age of 16. He has thus received his 30-year pin at a
relatively early age.
During his years with the Card Division. Mr.
Thompson, or "Tommy" as he is known, has held a
number of successively responsible positions. He has
performed the duties of each one with eagerness and
a dedication to the work of the Division and the
Library that is commendable. When asked if he
expected to try for "50," Mr. Thompson smiled and
said it was probably not likely.

The fourth revised and enlarged edition ofSuomen
Tieteellisten Kir/astojen Opas (Guide to the Research
and Special Libraries of Finland), edited by Matti
Liinamaa (Helsinki, Council of Research Libraries in
Finland, 1971. 140 p. Z821.AiL54 1971) has been
added to the reference collection in the Science Read-
ing Room.
This work differs in several respects from the third
edition published in 1962. The size is larger (17 1/2 x
25 versus 15 x 21 cm), the scope is broader, and the
book incorporates data from the Directory ofSpecial
Libraries in Finland (Helsinki, Finnish Association for
Documentation, 1958), which the Guide now also
supersedes. Of the 399 descriptive entries, 120 are
new, including descriptions of 16 large public libraries
with noteworth special collections that provide inter-
library loan. Participation in interlibrary loan or simi-
lar cooperative arrangement was a prerequisite for
inclusion in the Guide. In contrast to the classified
arrangement of the 1962 volume, the libraries are
listed alphabetically by their Finnish (or Swedish)
name with cross-references. While most entries are
written in Finnish (a few are in Swedish), all contain
the English name, and all follow a structured format

explicit numbered from I through 69; Keys to the
format in Finnish, Swedish, and English appear on
the inside covers. The English key enables the non-
Finnish reader to find and understand a good deal of
the information in the entries. The following indexes
are included: Union lists, UDC index (in Finnish),
subject index (in Finnish, keyed to the UDC index),
alphabetical index of libraries (in English), geographic
index, list of telex numbers, arid a brief list of abbre-
viations (Finnish-Swedish-English). An abridged
English version of the third edition was issued in
1962; until such an English guide is again published
(if indeed this is in the offing), the present Guide is
the major reference tool to Finnish research libraries
and international library cooperation. [Uno Teemant]

This latest edition of the Supplement lists 5,720
Indiari serial titles currently received in the New Delhi
office, and an additional 269 titles which have ceased
publication during the past year. The Supplement
graphically demonstrates both the dramatic increase
in the volume of Indian publishing activity, as well as
the continuing expansion of the New Delhi office's
coverage of current output. The first cumulative list
issue in April 1963 contained 1,115 titles in 78 pages.
If the growth trend continues, it is expected that the
next Supplement will require two volumes. The New
Delhi office also hopes to add a subject index to
make the list more useful to its users.

Series on Middle American Indians In Process
The Handbook of Middle American Indians,a multi-
volume series devoted primarily to the cultural
anthropology and archaeology of the Aztec and Maya
civilizations, is being published by the University of
Texas Press under the general editorship of Professor
Robert Wauchope, Director of the Middle American
Research Institute of Tulane University.
Volume 12 of this series, entitled "Guide to Ethno-
historical Sources (Part One)," was prepared under
the editorship of Howard F. Cline, the late director of
the Hispanic Foundation at the Library of Congress
with Charles Gibson of the University of Michigan,
John B. Glass, and H. B. Nicholson of the University
of California at Los Angeles as associate editors.
Volume 12, which is the first of four volumes con-
cerning ethnohistorical sources, contains chapters on

the cultural, political, and linguistic characteristics of
the Indian groups which inhabited the high culture
areas of Middle America. Mr. Cline's introduction
explains in detail the background and development of
the new discipline of ethnohistory, which is the utili-
zation of written records to reconstruct the culture
and history of the American Indians. Other chapters
include "Introductory Notes on Territorial Divisions
of Middle America," "Viceroyalty to Republics,
1786-1952: Historical Notes on the Evolution of
Middle American Political Units," and "The
Relaciones Geogrdficas of the Spanish Indies,
1577-1648." The last was a system devised by the
Spanish Crown to gather information on the social,
political, cultural, and economic aspects of Indian life
in the New World.
Sources in the European tradition-printed collec-
tions, secular and religious chroniclers, and bibliogra-
phies will be covered in volume 13. Volume 14 will
focus on native tradition including prose and pictorial
materials, and Volume 15 will include a checklist of
repositories and an index of authors, titles, and syno-
nyms. The remaining three volumes in the series are
scheduled to be published by the University of Texas
during 1973.
Copies of individual volumes are priced at $20 per
volume and may be ordered from the University of
Texas Press, Box 7819, Austin, Tex. 78712.

CLR Sponsors Book Restoration Manual
The Council on Library Resources has awarded two
grants to assist in a project to produce a manual on
the technology used to avert a cultural calamity fol-

lowing the November 1966 floods in Italy. The
manual will be prepared by an English bookbinder, an
English chemist, and an Italian book restorer of
American origin.
Anthony Cains, the English bookbinder who was
technical director of restoration activities at the
flooded Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale in Florence,
Italy (BNCF), is in charge of the work. He writes:
"The manual places emphasis throughout on the
importance of the book in its historical setting so that
nothing is done which renders the restored book an
anachronism, and on the importance of the continued
functionability of the book after restoration. As
many alternatives as possible are described at every
stage, and the restorer is encouraged by constant
reference to other sectors of the work to appreciate
the fundamental interrelationship between the work
of one department and another in determining the
quality of the finished work."
Signora Barbara Giuffrida-Ruggeri, nee Walker, an
Italian book restorer of American origin, is co-author
of the manual.
Margaret Hey, an English chemist, is contributing
her technical expertise to the project while conduc-
ting a series of experiments at the Istituto di Patolo-
gia del Libro in Rome on the effects of various
bleaches on paper. To conduct this research and to
evaluate heatset paper tissues (the name given to a
material specially made for the mending of paper by
dry application)-Miss Hey has received a $10,500
CLR grant. Heatset tissues were initially developed by
Peter Waters, LC Restoration Officer, and first used
and tested by the bookbinding team of Roger Powell
and Peter Waters and the Cockrell Institute bindery.
Later, heatset tissues were used on books damaged in
the Florence floods.
Included in the manual as well will be some of the
findings of Christopher Clarkson's two-year "limp
vellum bindings" study financed in part by a CLR
grant to the Royal College of Art (London). In addi-
tion to his study of limp vellum bindings in other
European countries. He now heads the Rare Book
Section in the Restoration Office of the Library of
Chapter headings of the manual will include:
(1) Preparation of the Book for Restoration, (2) Wet
Handling (3) Bleaching, Sizing, Deacidification/
Buffering, (4) Specification and Costing, (5) The
Laboratory, (6) Mending, (7) Sewing, (8) Endband-
