An informal reminiscence, this oral history details events that took place over nearly ninety years. It is of interest in its own right and also as a resource that could be drawn upon in the future for more formal historical work. It has been carefully reviewed and revised by the narrator himself, and organized for readability by the editor. Some bio-bibliographical information, a list of bibliographical references, and an index have been added to increase ease of use.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...unassuming and delightful book... * Lar *
Gitler's years in Japan may have been the time of his prime achievements and are definitely the focus of the book...The text is a highly edited version of Gitler's oral histories, conducted when he was in his mideighties. Buckland did an excellent job of making this available... * Information & Culture *
...these memoirs of one of the few old Japan hands in the American library world provide a history of the post-war introduction of library study to Japan and its successful development into library and information science...fluent and charming...The book will be valuable to scholars and librarians as well as the general reader interested in the librarianship of Japan and North America. * Pacific Affairs *
Highly recommended for all library school collections and for courses in international librarianship. * Library Journal *
