Nearly 100 Associates and other members of the University community enjoyed an unusually varied evening in the Class of 1916 Room on November 19. The Associates had invited English bookbinder and conservator Nicholas Pickwoad to address them that evening on his work with the National Trust (Great Britain) to preserve in situ the collections of books and manuscripts amassed by the owners of the stately homes now administered by the Trust. As invitations were being addressed, however, Antje Lemke, Associate and Professor in the School of Information Studies, called to say that the School of Information Studies, had invited Patricia Battin, Vice President and University Librarian at Columbia University, to speak the same evening. It was quickly determined that, with a break for refreshments to sustain them, lovers of libraries would want to attend both lectures.
