Summary
Letters, photographs,an interview transcript, and other material by or about Esther Johnston, a librarian who began her career with the New York Public Library in 1916, and who retired as Chief of the Circulation Department in 1951. Letters are from friends and colleagues, and chiefly concern her retirement. The transcribed interview was conducted in 1965 by library historian Phyllis Dain, and discusses Johnston's career with the Library. Several offprints of articles about literature and librarianship written by Johnston are also included, as is an undated draft of an article titled "Dancing with Doughboys," recounting her participation with civilian relief groups in France in 1918. Pictures are of Johnston at various Library-related functions.
