Louis Shores was one of the undisputed intellectual leaders of librarianship in the 1960s, noted for his fight to incorporate teaching functions into librarianship and to create programs of library education. Lee Shiflett's carefully researched and eminently readable account of Shores's fascinating life is an accurate portrait of the complex character and career of this librarian, poet, and maverick educator.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is a well-crafted and balanced portrait of an unusual and influential man. * AB Bookman's Weekly *
...tells the story of this fascinating man's career and, in doing so, highlights many of the important issues in librarianship from the 1950s through the 1970s. * American Libraries *
This is conceivably one of the finest and certainly most lucid, library biographies to date...it is unusual to have such a balanced and richly textured portrait of a venerable worthy...so recently deceased...the lack of pedantry, plus Shiflett's straightforward style, make it highly recommended reading for any librarian curious about the profession... * The Serials Librarian *
A capable writer, Shiflett has the reader feeling Shores' frustrations when he is not getting what he wants, or attaining his goals, or being in the limelight...one gets the impression that Shiflett enjoyed his research...an authoritative and readable biography, Shiflett has reintroduced Louis Shores to the library world...His ideas will continue to generate discussion in library schools and among library historians. * College & Research Libraries *
This full-length biographical study...was long in coming, but worth the wait. Shiflet has clearly done his homework...a biography that is both scholarly and sympathetic, no small task... * Information & Culture *
An authoritative and readable biography, Shiflett has reintroduced Louis Shores to the library world. His ideas will continue to generate discussion in library schools and among library historians. * College & Research Libraries *
This is a forceful biography of a powerful presence in the library world and inspirational story of a committed librarian. Library schools need this book for their library history collections. * Lisca *
