Additional Information

At Library Associates' Annual Members' Luncheon, April 28, 1978, Dr. Frank P. Piskor received the Syracuse Post-Standard A ward for Distinguished Service to the Syracuse University Libraries. (See The Courier, XV, 2 and 3, Summer 1978). The text of his talk on that occasion was published in A.B. Bookman's Weekly (June 26, 1978, p. 4515). The following is his talk as delivered, taken from a tape-recording graciously given to the editor by Mrs. Ramona Bowden of the Post-Standard staff. In his talk, Dr. Pistor speaks on the state of book collecting, suggesting that the hobby is dying due to both cheap book production and intentionally rare edition publishing, and how this affects libraries.
