Considered the most influential librarian and library educator in the U.S. in the first half of the 20th century, Williamson helped shape library education and librarianship today. In this first full-length published biography, the author records the activities of the Williamson era. In a career spanning three decades, Williamson had a varied and active affiliation with Western Reserve University, Bryn Mawr College, the New York Public Library, the Municipal Reference Library of the City of New York, the Carnegie Corperation of New York, the Rockafeller Foundation, and Columbia University. His 1923 report, Training for Library Service, had a major impact on librarianship, and especially on changes in library education.
