I am reading back issues of Against the Grain. It is fascinating to remember the past. Really! Bill Hannay writes that Lewis Timothy was the first paid librarian when he was hired by Philadelphia November 14, 1732. When I asked him who the first paid lawyer was,  he answered that it was either a Babylonian type or the snake in the garden of Eden! I miss Bill. May he rest in peace. BUT, we have  “The Hannay Way” on the Charleston hub for some legal memories. Here’s just one1! Fixing the prices of ebooks. Should it be $9.99. And much more! 

Just saw the headline: “Have Americans lost their appetite for the basic burger”? It is an article by one of my favorite Charleston Post and Courier columnists, Warren Peper.  Warren asks if the new cousin is the “boutique burger’? Warren recalls two burger places that are fond memories.–

The Goodie House on Calhoun Street across from the College of Charleston run by a mom and pop and their two sons. It only had seats for 10 or so people and was always packed. Cerise Oberman and I always had the cheese omelets. Cerise left Charleston and is now in Plattsburgh, NY, where she and her husband Laurence Soroka founded Plattsburgh Expeditionary Studies (EXP) where they plan to provide deserving EXP students financial support by establishing the EXP award.  alumni.plattsburgh.edu

I have been working on a history of the Conference and ATG. It’s so much fun! Reminiscing and remembering old friends. I was fascinated to run across this “And They Were There” article in the September 1992 ATG, p.28. “James J. O’Donnell, Professor of Classical Studies at the University of Pennsylvania presented “Saint Augustine to NREN: The Tree of Knowledge and How it Grows.” He stressed that as the “new age  begins, it is imperative to know what age it draws to a close.” He felt that as we move to electronic communication, it is not the age of writing or the printed word that is ending, but rather the “codex –  the artifact that is printed, stitched at the left,  read left to right and up and down.” He suggests that librarians will need to continue to become specialists in software and sorting, finders and organizers.  The publishers’ role might very well decrease as the librarians’ role increases in this new age of electronic communication.”
