To His Honor Patrick A. Collins, 

Mayor of the City of Boston : 

The Trustees of the Public Library of the City of Boston 
present the following report of its condition for the year end- 
ing January 31, 1903, being their fifty-first annual report: 

The term of Dr. Henry P. Bowditch, who had served as 
Trustee since May 1, 1894, expired on April 30, 1902. Dr. 
Bowditch was deeply interested in the Library. He gave to 
it much time and faithful service of the highest value. Mr. 
Thomas F. Boyle, of Boston, was appointed a Trustee to 
succeed him, to serve for five years from May 1, 1902. The 
Board was organized in May, 1902, by the re-election of Mr. 
Solomon Lincoln as President and Dr. James De Normandie 
as Vice-President. Miss Delia Jean Deery was re-elected 
Clerk of the Corporation. 

Mr. James L. Whitney, by reason of ill health, resigned 
the office of Librarian, his resignation taking effect January 
31, 1903, and Mr. Horace G. Wadlin, recently Chief of the 
Massachusetts Bureau of Statistics of Labor, was appointed 
to succeed him. Mr. Wadlin assumed the duties of the office 
February 1, 1903. 

The Trustees desire to express publicly their high appre- 
ciation of Mr. Whitney's fidelity to the duties of Librarian 
and of his intelligent administration of that office. He has 
contributed largely to the stable growth and permanent suc- 
cess of the Library. 



2 City Document No. 24. 

In tills report the Trustees have largely followed the order 
of topics presented in previous reports, in order to exhibit 
the comparative condition of the Library in this and preced- 
ing years. 

The following tables exhibit the receipts and expenditures 
during the past year:

There are appended to this report, as to its predecessors, 
the reports of the Librarian, Mr. Whitney, of the Auditor, 
and of the Examining Committee of Citizens, and the Trustees 
suggest an examination of these by all who desire a more in- 
timate knowledge of the Library than it is possible to present 
in this general report. 

The Trustees report, as usual, a large expansion of the 
agencies of the Library. \n place of one hundred and 
seventeen existing a year ago there are now one hundred and 
fifty-six. They are the Central Library on Copley Square, 
ten branch libraries, twenty-one deliveiy stations, of which 
eleven contain reading rooms, and also, as places of deposit 
for delivery, thirt3--six engine houses, sixteen city institutions, 
aud seventy-two schools. There has been a still farther ex- 
pansion of the hours during which some of these agencies are 
kept open. 

* This balance Is composed of certain Items of trust fund income, accrued Interest 
on deposit, etc., as shown in the Auditor's detailed statement, Appendix 1., pajre 44. 



Library Department. 3 

The number of velumes added to the Library during the 
year was 34,635. Last year the number added was 35,835. 
These volumes were obtained chiefly by purchase, but in 
some part by gift and exchange. 

The number of voUunes in the Library at the close of the 
year was 835,904. The home use of books for tlie year was 
1,489,033. During the preceding year the number was 
1,483,513. The Trustees during the past year have con- 
tinued to diminish their purchases of contemporary fiction, 
and to the result of this policy must be attributed some 
diminution of the home use of books, particularly in the 
branch libraries. 

The Trustees have had, as heretofore, the valuable assist- 
ance of a few ladies and gentlemen who have consented to 
read works of fiction, and to express to the Librarian their 
opinion of the value of these books. This service is confined 
to works of fiction, and the final decision as to the selection of 
these rests, as in the case of all books, with the Trustees. 

The report of Mr. Wliitney contains an interesting account 
in detail of many valuable acquisitions of the Library during 
the past year. The Trustees have also acquired several valu- 
able historical manuscripts and have published a selection 
in their Bulletin. They do not understand that it is desirable 
for the Library to acquire all similar matter as opportunity 
presents, but they believe that it is desirable that interesting 
documents especially relating to the history of the Town and 
City of Boston properly find a place in it. 

An important change was made during the past year in the 
internal administration of the Central Library. The Binding 
and Printing Departments were removed from the central 
building to commodious quarters in Stanhope street. In this 
way room much needed has been provided and healthful 
accommodation has been substituted for crowded and ill- 
ventilated rooms. In addition the Trustees believe that the 
change will result in a saving of money and that work hereto- 
fore done outside the Library can be done by the Library 
force of workmen, although this force has been necessarily 
mcreased. 

The Trustees have continued the publication of their Bul- 
letins, of annual lists of acquisitions, and of historical manu- 
scripts as heretofore. Nearly all of these publications are 
directed to making available the resources of the Library. 
They have also provided timely lists of books upon topics for 



4 City Document No. 24. 

the moment engaging public attention,- as for instance, — 
lists of books touching the subjects of lectures given at the 
Lowell Institute, and the Quest and Achievement of the 
Holy Grail, Mr. Abbey's recent decoration of the Library. 

The Special Libraries, including the Allen A. Brown 
Library of Music, receive constant accessions, and the use of 
these libraries increases. A collection of books printed for 
the use of the blind has been made accessible for their use. 

A course of free lectures on the aesthetic development of 
cities w^as given in March, April, and May. The lecturers 
were Messrs. Albert Kelsey, C. Howard Walker, R. Clipston 
Sturgis, John DeWitt Warner, Edmund ]\L Wheelwright, 
F. W. Ruckstuhl, F. L. Olmsted, Jr., John Woodbury, and 
Brooks Adams. 

On September 1, 1902, to the regret of the Trustees, Mr. 
Worthington C. Ford resigned his office as Chief of the 
Department of Documents and Statistics. ^Ir. Ford had 
demonstrated the value of the department. Those who resort 
to it are among the most intelligent of the visitors to the 
Library. The space at the command of the department has 
been enlarged, and the Trustees confidently predict for it an 
increasing usefulness. 

The system of examinations prior to appointment to any 
important position in the Library is maintained, and constant 
effort is made that the examination papers shall be reasonably 
adapted to develop the education required for the service of 
the Library, while yet not unnecessarily technical nor severe. 

The Trustees have granted the use of the Lecture Room 
for the meetings of several societies and associations whose 
purposes touch upon the work of a library. 

The Examining Committee of the past year consisted of: 



Charles S. Hamlin, 

Chairman, 
Miss ^Lary Boyle O'Reilly, 

Secretary, 
Miss Sarah L. Arnold, 
Rev. Carlos C. Carix-nter,

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Board of Trustees : 

The report of the Librarian for the year ending January 
31, 1903, is hereby submitted.* 

THE LIBRARY SYSTEM. 

The Library system of agencies comprises : 

The Central Library on Copley Square. 

Ten branch libraries, with permanent collections of books. 

Twenty-one deliyer}- stations (of which eleven are reading 
rooms), and also, as places of deposit or delivery, thirty-six 
engine houses, sixteen city institutions, and seventj^-two 
schools, making a total of one hundred and fifty-six agencies, 
as against one hundred and seventeen a year ago. 

FINANCE. 

A record of the receipts and payments for the year is 
to be fonnd in the report of the Auditor of the Library 
(Appendix L). 

BUILDINGS, EQUIPMENT, AND GENERAL 
ADMIMSTRATION. 

Last summer the liindery and Printing establishments 
were moved from the Central Library to Stanhope street. 
The rooms heretofore occupied by these departments were 
fitted up with a gallery and shelving for the use of the 
Patent and Bound Xcws[)ai)er departments. 

No other extensive alterations or repairs have been made 
upon the Central Library building duiing the year. 

The Chief Engineer has reported that the engines, dynamos, 
boilers, i)umps, and elevators have worked satisfactorily. On 
July 1 the motors connected with the Bindery and Printing 
Department were transferred to the bnilding on Stanhope 
street. 

* This report was prepared and submitted by Mr. James L. Whitney, whose period 
of service ended by liis resignation taking etfect January 31, 1903, at the close of the 
year covered by the report. 



LiBEARY Department. 7 

The high price of coal and the use of bituminous coal for 
some months have added largely to the expense of heating 
and cleaning the building. Of anthracite coal, 950 tons were 
received during the year, and of bituminous coal, 705 tons. 

Since the changes made not long ago in the arrangements 
for heating the building but few complaints have been made. 

Works of Art. 

A portion of the second section of the mural decoration 
made by Mr. John Singer Sargent for the Library has been 
put in place. It is entitled " The Dogma of the Redemp- 
tion." Only the frieze and lunette of the wall are covered ; 
the ceiling and two panels of the frieze are not finished. In 
the Monthly Bulletin for March, 1903, is a description of 
this decoration. 

Mr. James M. Ellis has given to the Library a reduced 
copy of the bronze statue " Hermes Resting,"' in the Museo 
Nazionale at Naples. 

Books Received. 

The following account of the additions to the Library is 
taken from the report prepared by Miss Theodosia E. 
Macurdy, Chief of the Ordering and Receiving Department. 

The accessions to the Library, as distinguished from the 
books that have reached the shelves and excluding mere 
transfers from one department to another, were, for the year, 
34,635 volimies, as against 35,835 in the preceding year.

A distinguishing feature of the additions to the Library for 
the year is the larger representation of the writings of living 
continental authors. These have been recommended for 
purchase by IMr. Thomas S. Perry, who has joined the staff 
of the Librar}'. 

Important l)ooks have been obtained from auction sales, 
especially from the John S. Dwight, the Whitmore, and the 
May collections. Of the 981 books for which bids were 
made the Library secured 719. 

Many of the accessions to the Library are valuable, particu- 
larly those relating to Colonial and Revolutionary times, to 
Boston and New England, the Philippines, the Quakers, 
and the Civil War. There have also been interesting pur- 
chases of Spanish literature, of manuscripts, including scores

SPANISH BOOKS. 

To the Ticknor Collection a number of rare books have 
been added, among them a copy of Egidio Colonna, Regimieta 
de los principes . . . Sevilla, 1494; Antonio Torquemada, 
Jardin de flores curiosas, Salamanca, 1570; Celestina, Tragi-

A set of seventy-seven volumes of the official Spanish 
paper, Gaceta de Madrid, 1735-1872 (with omissions), has 
been ordered. These, with what the Library already pos- 
sesses, make a fairly complete file. 

MUSIC SCORES. 

A collection of 175 manuscript orchestral scores, repre- 
senting chiefly the masters of the Italian school, has been 
secured. Mr. Allen A. Brown, in recommending its purchase 
to the Trustees, says: " It seems to me that the acquisition 
of such a large number of scores, most of which are unpub- 
lished, and from the very nature of things hard to find, would 
be well worth your serious consideration. It would enable 
me practically to complete the sets in full score of the works

of Bellini, Rossini, and Meyerbeer, to say nothing of large 
additions to the works of Cimarosa, Donizetti, Paer, Paisiello,

contemporaneous books and manuscripts, on the Philippine 
Islands, 1493-1803, to be published in fifty-five volumes. 

PURCHASES for NEW STATIONS, ETC. 

The only conspicuous purchases of popular books outside 
the ordinary acquisitions were as follows : — (1.) For the 
equipment of Station C (Parker Memorial), a collection of 
reference books, at a cost of -$225; four hundred books for 
Station F (Mt. Bowdoin), $435, and a special purchase of 
130 copies representing twelve titles of well-known stories 
(chiefly for children) by Miss Alcott, Aldrich, Lang, Mrs. 
Stowe, etc., at a cost of il50, for the Central Library. 

From the income of the Daniel S. Ford fund a considerable 
purchase was made, principally of the Lang Fairy books. 

FICTION. 

Increasing care is taken in the selection of works of fiction. 
As heretofore, friends of the Library, organized as volunteers, 
have given valuable assistance as readers of such books be- 
fore they are passed upon by the Trustees. The number 
reported on during the past year was 702. Of these, 112 
different works of fiction were purchased. 

Of the total city appropriation spent for books, twenty- 
seven per cent. ($6,472.94) was used for English prose 
fiction, of which 6,526 copies were obtained, as against 8,014 
copies, at a cost of $7,868.12, the preceding year.

The Catalogue Depaetment. 

The following statements are taken from the report of Mr. 
Edward B. Hunt, Chief of the Catalogue and Shelf Depart- 
ments : 

CATALOGUE DIVISION. 

Number of volumes and parts catalogued and recatalogued . 51,002 
Number of titles for the same 33,383 

These totals include the following items : 

Number of new volumes and parts (Central Library) . . 23,653 

Number of titles for the same 16,534 

Number of volumes and parts recatalogued .... 12,792 

Number of titles for the same 7,445 

Number of serials added 4,862 

Branch libraries : 

Number of volumes catalogued 9,695 

Number of titles for the same 8,860 

For the Cooperative index of scientific periodicals 544 
titles have been catalogued by Mr. John Murdoch. From 
the other libraries which share this work 2,578 cards have 
been received. 

There were printed, headings written for, and filed this 
year for the general and special catalogues of the Central 
Library, 214,85(3 cards; also 15,402 cards have been sent to 
the branches. 

About three-fourths of the work in progress by the Cata- 
logue and .Shelf De})artments of transferring all the books 
not fiction from the iiction stack, with the necessary recata- 
loguing and change of numbers, is done. 

The department has also looked up the titles of 5,474 vol- 
umes with a view to their purchase. Since May, 1902, this 
work has been in charge of Mr. Thomas S. Perry, and the 
above figures represent the number examined by the departr- 
nient, in addition to the work done by Mr. Perry. 

Much work has been done in the preparation of a new 
catalogue of English fiction. In this undertaking help has 
been received from the Issue and Branch Departments. This 
catalogue is to be printed the coming year. A new Branch 
Finding List has been printed, and a new List of periodicals 
currently received has been prepared by Miss Frederika 
AVcndtd, in charge of the Periodical Room. 

The new and improved linotj-pe, when received, will in- 
crease the output of the Catalogue Department, and enable 
the work to go forward more regularly and evenly than 
heretofore. 



Library Department. 15 



SHELF DIVISION. 

The minute statistics of the Shelf Division, as prepared 
hy Mr. William G. T. Roffe, the officer in charge, are to be 
seen in Appendix IV. 

The net increase of the Central Library for the year was 
19,204 volumes, and the total number of volumes on January 
31, 1903, was 654,705. The total number of volumes in the 
Central Library and branches was 835,904. 

Publications. 

A statement as to the publications of the Library during 
the past year is taken from the report of Mr. Lindsay Swift, 
Editor of the publications of the Library. 

Publications for 1902-1903. D;ite of issue. Pages. Edition. Price. 

Monthly Bulletins 1st of each month, 496 *5,000 Free. 

Annual List January 1, 1903, 213 4,000 $.05 

Branch Finding List September, 1902, 148 6,000 .05 

Ilistorical Manuscripts 122 250 For exchange. 

During the past year, the Lowell Institute, through the 
Curator, Professor William T. Sedgwick, has furnished for 
publication in the Bulletin selected lists of works illustrative 
of the lectures in course of delivery before the Institute. 
In every case the lecturer has made the list himself, and it has 
then been put into shape with no expense to the Library. 
These lists, though brief, and certainly in no case exhaustive, 
have a certain stamp of authority which they would fail to 
have if they emanated solely from the Library. They are as 
follows : 

The Parthenon, by Mr. Edwai'd Robinson ; The expansion 
of Russia, by Professor Archibald Cary Coolidge ; American 
literature in the Nineteenth Centuiy, by Colonel Thomas 
Wentworth Higginson ; Some problems of modern physi- 
ology, by Dr. Henry Pickering Bowditch ; Great English- 
men of the Sixteenth Century, by Sidney Lee, Litt.D., of 
London. 

Other matter aside from the regular display of new titles 
has appeared in the Bulletin, namely, the Esthetic devel- 
opment of cities (list illustrative of a course of free lectures 
in this Library, March-May, 1902) ; The Quest and Achieve- 
ment of the Holy Grail (explanation of the paintings by 
Edwin -A. Abbey, R. A.) ; Supplementary list of text-books 
used in the public schools of Boston, and Programme of 
exhibitions by the Fine Arts Department at the Central 
Library. 

* The edition of the Bulletin in .June, July, August, and September was 4,000 per 
month. 



16 City Document No. 24. 

To make the Central Library more and more accessible to 
the whole Library system is one of the chief purposes of the 
Annual List and the Monthly Bulletin. If the public, which 
depends on the branches and reading rooms, would use 
these guides, it would have much readier access to the new 
and better boolvs. By the recent introduction in the JNlonthly 
Bulletin of titles of new books common to all the branches, 
this publication stands for something more vital to these 
agencies. The Annual Lists will henceforth contain solidi- 
fied lists of the monthly aggregation at the branches. This 
will not only insure a wider use for the Annual List, but will 
serve as a supplement to the latest Branch Finding List, of 
which no new edition is contemplated probably within five 
years. 

Nothing has proved so acceptable to the public as lists 
which furnish what the card catalogue cannot possibly un- 
dertake to do. Especially serviceable are lists of books in 
foreign languages. Our small catalogues of works in the 
Scandinavian, Russian, Polish, French, and German languages 
are in constant use, and revised editions are needed. They 
are not by any means used entirely by those who read only 
fiction in their native tongues. They open up to these in- 
terested readers other departments of literature as no card 
catalogue can possibly do. When anew list is in preparation 
the Library makes up deficiencies and adds new material, 
thus in a measure keeping up with the current demands in 
several important literatures. 

Of the Historical ^lanuscripts series three numbers have 
been published, while two numbers are ready for the press 
and authorized to be printed. These live numbers complete 
the series projected by j\h-. Worthington ('. Ford and the 
Editor, and are made up from material first selected from 
manuscripts in the Library for publication in the Monthly 
Bulletin. They have been printed on handsome paper, in a 
limited edition, of 250 copies for each number, and have 
been offered in exchange for equally valuable matter. 
When complete, the work will contain 148 separate letters 
and documents, hitherto unprinted, in the compass of about 
275 pages. 

The Binding of Books. 

It having been decided by tlie Trustees to use the rooms 
occupied by the Bindery and Printing Establishments for 
the Patent Library, these two departments were moved in 
July to No. 42 Stanhope street, where are suitable and well 
lighted rooms. 



Library Department. 17 

Arrangements were made to do all of the binding in this 
building, including the repairing and other work heretofore 
done by contract outside. To this end, the force was in- 
creased from nineteen to twentj^-seven persons, including a 
•clerk and an errand boy. Books and other material are now 
carried back and forth by a special wagon. 

The report of Mr. Ryder, the Chief of the Bindery, gives 
minute statistics of all work done, with the cost. The total 
expense has been '$21,225.93, including $1,284.05 spent for 
moving and for enlarging the plant. It is estimated that 
the sum of $18,259.70 was spent for binding 25,013 books, 
varying in size and in expensiveness of material. 

The transfer of the two departments was made mider the 
supervision of Mr. Thomas F. Boyle, one of a special com- 
mittee of the Trustees, appointed for this purpose. 

As heretofore, books bought abroad are bound before they 
are sent to this country. The Library is thus able to obtain 
attractively bound books at a very small cost. 

The Printing Department. 

On the removal last smnmer to Stanhope street, the Print- 
ing Department found itself in possession of a large and 
comfortable workshop in place of the small and badly venti- 
lated room at the Library building on Dartmouth street. 

On November 14, the Trustees voted that a contract be 
made with the Mergenthaler Linotype Company for a new 
linotype. This third machine, for which the Library has long 
waited, is at last perfected, and it is anticipated that when 
put in operation shortly a decided impulse will be given to 
the printing to be done for the Library. 

Owing to circumstances connected with the removal of 
the plant to its new location, and other unavoidable condi- 
tions, the statistical record of the work of the year must be 
regarded as approximate rather than absolute. Subject to 
this qualification the work of the year, as reported by Mr. 
Francis W. Lee, the Chief of the department, is as follows : 

Number of cards printed for the Card 
Catalogue of the Central Library : 

Titles 35,385 

Finished cards (not counting extras), 214,856 

Card Catalogues, Branches : 

Titles 272 

Cards, approximately . . . 13,660 

The bulletins, annual lists, and special lists printed by this 
department are already mentioned in the report of the Editor 
•of Library Publications.

From the Stock Department 75,225 copies of the publica- 
tions of the Library have been distributed, also 2,055,085 
blank forms, including 1,787,500 call slips. An itemized 
account is rendered yearly by Mr. George V. ^Nlooney, the 
Custodian, of the stationery and other material dehvered to 
each department, with the cost of the same. 

Registration. 

The tables of statistics prepared by Mr. John J. Keenan, 
the head of the Registration Department (see Appendix VL) 
show that the number of " live " cards (that is of cards 
which, according to the regulations of the Library, may be 
used by borrowers of books for home use), was 72,815, on 
January 31, 190.3, as against 72,902 on January 31, 1902. 

Bonds of indemnity for any loss which may be sustained 
by the Library from the issue of cards to non-resident 
students have been filed by seven additional Boston colleges 
and schools, making a total of fifty-nine. 

The Use of Books. 

In Appendix \'II. are tables giving the number of books 
used for home reading. The sum is : 

UoiiH' Use.

Only a partial account is kept of books used within the 
various libraries, no count being made of books taken from

the open shelves, or of the use of magazines, newspapers, and 
photographs. 

inter-library loans. 

To other libraries 620 volumes have been lent, as against 
461 the preceding year. This Library has borrowed twenty- 
six volumes. It should be understood that it is not intended 
to supply other libraries with popular books, but only such as 
are scholarly or unusual. 

The Issue Department of the Central Library. 

The use of books from the Central Library only, in its 
various departments, as reported by Miss Margaret D. 
McGuffey, Chief of the Issue Department, has been as 
follows : 

Volumes. 

Issue for home use ..... 314,353 
Issue through Branch Division (but. not includ- 
ing issue to engine-houses and vacation 
schools) 108,554 



Total 422,907 

Recorded hall use. (These figures represent 
only the books that it has been found prac- 
ticable to count, not including the use of 
books on open shelves.) . . . .370,751 



Total home and hall use .... 793,658 

The daily average of books used at the Central Library 
w^ithout the Branch Division has been 1,918 volumes, and 
with that division 2,217 volumes. 

The average Sunday use has been 1,500 volumes. 

The largest week-day issue, without the branches, was 
3,719 volumes, and for any Sunday was 2,557 volumes. 

The loss for the year on books issued for home use was 
forty-four volumes, and for hall use nineteen volumes. The 
delays in the issue of books from the stacks to readers in the 
Bates Hall and Children's Rooms, while less than at some 
times in the past, are still occasion for annoyance to readers 
and to the officers of the Library. By tests made in Septem- 
ber last it was found that the average time taken to get a 
book to a reader was twelve minutes. There are many rea- 
sons for this delay, the chief ones being the distance of the 
shelves from the reading rooms, and the darkness of the 
stacks. 



20 City Document No. 24. 



Bates Hall. 



By the report of Mr. Oscar A. Bierstadt, the Custodian, it 
appears that in the general reading room work has gone on 
under favorable conditions as to temperature and ventilation. 

It might be expected that with the increase in the number 
of branches and other agencies of tlie Librar\% and the throw- 
ing open of the shelves to the public more and more, the 
home use of books at the Central Library would be less. It 
is believed that this has not been the case to any great 
extent. 

While the books missing from the open shelves are fewer 
than in former years, the number is enough to cause solici- 
tude. Their money value, however, is small, and it does not 
seem worth while to exclude the public from all access to 
the shelves. 

The work done by the Bates Hall attendants cannot be 
represented in statistics, as is })Ossible in other departments. 
The chief requisite is to make books accessible to readers, 
not only those who apply in person, but also those who 
seek aid through the outside agencies of the Library, as well 
as by letter. The demands upon the Library in these partic- 
ulars are very numerous. The revision of the reference 
collection of books in Bates Hall it is thought will be com- 
pleted during the coming year. 

The maximum number of readers at anyone time in Bates 
Hall was 330. On Sundays and holidays 80,591 volumes 
were used. Throngs visit the Library on Sundays as sight- 
seers, and strict measures for preserving order are adopted. 

Special Libraries. 

The following statements are taken from the report of Mr. 
Otto Fleischner, in charge of the Special Libraries : 

During the year 2,(S74 volumes have been added to this 
department, as follows : 

Fine arts 1,186 

Industrial arts ...... 405 

JMusic (Allen A. Brown collection) . . 357 

" (General colk'ctlon) . . . . 213 

Other collections . . . . . 713 



Total 2,874 

There are now 96,603 volumes in this section of the 
Library, exclusive of the documents of the United States and 
Great Britain. 



LiBKABY Department. 21 



PHOTOGRAPHS. 



Photographs to the number of 805 have been purchased 
and 278 received by gift. The collection now numbers 15,127 
photographs, 320 colored photographs, and 5,956 process 
pictures. 

To the special collections used for exhibitions at the 
branches and schools, have been added 429 pictures. 

CATALOGUES. 

The work of filing under one alphabet the catalogues of 
the Special Libraries in the Barton gallery has been continued, 
and also the entering in the Fine arts catalogue of the titles of 
the printed catalogue of books on Architecture. About 
7,900 cards have been prepared for the combined shelf and 
accession list of photographs and 500 process pictuies. The 
catalogue of book illustrations is kept up to date. The print- 
ing of the cards for the Allen A. Brown music library has 
reached the letter N. All important articles on the Fine arts 
in sixty-three different periodicals are indexed by the assist- 
ants in charge of the Periodical Room and the Music Library. 
The titles in eight additional periodicals are to be found in 
the American Library Association Cooperative Index. 

SPECIAL COLLECTIONS. 

The use of the Barton-Ticknor library continues to increase, 
for the year attaining to the number of 10,984 books and 604 
maps. The average number of volumes issued daily was 
thirty-two. The Allen A. Brown Library of Music contains 
9,189 volumes. Among the interesting recent additions are 
the Songs of Hugo Wolf ; also the Songs of Richard Strauss, 
all of whose works the Library now possesses, except those 
written for the piano-forte alone. Of manuscript scores of 
early Italian operas, 285 volumes have been purchased. These 
include sixteen operas by Cimarosa, twenty by Mayer, three 
by Mercadante, fifteen by Paer, fourteen by Paisiello, two by 
Bellini, one by Meyerbeer, and fourteen by Rossini. 

As heretofore, many collections of books have been reserved 
for the use of classes and schools. 

A collection of books for the blind has been placed on 
tables and shelves convenient for use. Current numbers of 
periodicals for the blind have been given by a committee of 
the Women's Educational and Industrial Laiion.

from Hans Andersen, were given by Miss Marie Shedlock. 

VISITS OF CLASSES. 

Schools and clubs in classes have made frequent visits to 
the Library for study and lectures, as follows: 

Schools, 73 visits, 1,0.^4 members. 

Clubs, 52 visits, 824 members. 

Private classes, 88 visits, 1.G39 members. 



Library Department. 23 

To schools and clubs 303 portfolios of pictures have been 
sent. 

Miss Grace A. Hitchcock, the chief assistant of the depart- 
ment, resigned August 6. Mrs. Marian L. Chamberlain was 
advanced to her place, and Mr. Walter G. Forsyth was trans- 
ferred from the Catalogue Department. Miss Louise Prouty 
MRS placed in charge of the Barton-Ticknor room, in place of 
Miss Helen R. Keller, resigned. 

Department Of Documents and Statistics. 

Mr. Worthington C. Ford resigned as chief of the Depart- 
ment of Documents and Statistics on September 1, 1902. 
Mr. Horace L. Wheeler, the first assistant, was in charge 
until the end of the Library year. The following statements 
are taken from his report: 

The crowded condition of the gallery assigned to this de- 
partment has seriously interfered, as heretofore, with orderly 
and systematic work. By a rearrangement of the shelves 
and the removal of duj^licates some room was obtained, and a 
distinct gain made in orderliness and therefore in the facility 
with which the wants of inquirers could be satisfied. The 
working force of the department, reduced from three to two 
persons, was found to be inadequate to the demands made 
upon it. 

According to the preceding annual report, the department 
contained 8,541 volumes, exclusive of the collection of docu- 
ments in the Special Libraries. During the year 1,114 
volumes were added, partly new accessions and partly trans- 
fers from the stacks. The reception by gift, through the 
American Statistical Association, amounted to 1,611 volumes 
and parts, and these have been of the same character as those 
heretofore received. Therefore, the collection, exclusive of 
documents in the Special Libraries, is now a statistical, 
economic, and sociological library of almost ten thousand 
volumes. The Department has also received 1,072 pieces 
which have been placed in the Main Library. 

The material which came from the American Statistical 
Association, four years and a half ago, has now been practi- 
cally incorporated in the statistical collection. 

The value of the Department of Documents and Statistics 
cannot be estimated by the mere number of those who visit 
it. This number is not inconsiderable now, but is certain to 
be much larger when adequate accommodations for work are 
provided. The importance of the department depends upon 
its resources and the character of the public which it serves.

Some inquiries are trivial and some are for unobtainable 
knowledge, but the majority of visitors are intelligent people, 
often experts in some field. 

With the increase of space will come greater facility in the 
use of the collection and its more systematic development, 
together with a consideration of the scope it shall henceforth 
have. 

On February 1, 1903, Mr. James L. Whitney was appointed 
Chief of the Department. 

Manuscripts. 

Among the interesting manuscripts recently received by 
the Library is an Orderly Book, kept by Colonel Thomas 
Grosvenor, of the Troops of the Connecticut Line, from June 
30, 1779, to October 25, 1782. It is in nine volumes, and its 
great value consists in the fact that it is a consecutive record, 
without a gap, covering doings of a division of the American 
array for the period of time mentioned. 

A manuscript note book of Thomas Prince has been given 
to the Prince Collection by Miss Susan E. Daggett, of New 
Haven, through the Rev. Dr. George A. Gordon. It is 
called "jVIy 5th Writing Book," and begins ^lay 25, 1718, 
ending June 3, 1722. 

To the anti-slavery manuscripts in the Library, two collec- 
tions have been added, including many letters to Lysander 
Spooner and David Lee Child. 

Mr. Charles P. Greenough has given a collection of deeds 
and other legal documents on parchment (sixty-eight English 
and eight American), cliiefly of the seventeenth and eight- 
eenth centuries. 

At the sale of the Library of John S. D wight interesting 
autograph letters were purchased, relating to Brook Farm, 
These include letters by Christopher Cranch, George W. 
Curtis, Charles A. Dana, Margaret Fuller, Horace Greeley, 
and Elizabeth P. Peabody. 

Tlie Library obtained the original manuscript found in the 
grasshopper vane on Faneuil Hall, dated iNIay 25, 1742, "To 
My lirethren & Fellow Grasshoppers,*' etc. 

From Dr. Samuel A. Green about 300 sermons in manu- 
script, by the Rev. Dr. Abiel Holmes, have been leceived. 

Work on the author index of the Chamberlain manuscripts 
was continued by Mr. Worthington C. Ford, and many manu- 
scripts have been mounted. 

Since September 1, 1902, until the end of tlie Library year, 
the department lias been under the charge of Mr. Horace L. 
Wheeler. 



LiBEARY Department. 25- 

The publication in the Monthly Bulletin of inedited manu- 
scripts in the Library has been continued. 

The Children's Rooms. 

In May, Mrs. Gertrude P. Sheffield, who bad been in charge 
of the Children's Rooms since 1896, resigned. Miss Alice M. 
Jordan, who was appointed Custodian, has continued the work 
of the department under the same general methods as her 
predecessor. 

The report of this officer shows that the growth of the 
spirit of cooperation, which has been noticed in other depart- 
ments of the Library, is seen also here. Through the year 
talks have been given to classes coming with their teachers 
from the public schools, on the use of the Library and its- 
catalogues and reference books. Arrangements have been 
made for classes wishing to consult books on special subjects. 
Visits to the schools by the Custodian have been helpful. 

Many teachers come to the Library asking for lists of 
books, and children walk long distances to study subjects on 
which they are required to write compositions. 

While encouraging the use of this collection of books by 
the young, it is recognized that for children on whom the de- 
mands of school work are pressing there must be a caiefully 
guarded limit. Many children are allowed only one book at 
a time during term time, others do not take any, one boy say- 
ing recently, "Reading has injured me enough already in my 
school life." No effort is made to urge such children to use 
the Library, otherwise than in connection with their school 
work. 

The systematic making of picture bulletins has been a new 
feature. The purpose is to call attention to interesting books, 
not fiction, in order that the large issue of stories may give 
way to what is of greater value. 

In the words of the Custodian, " The Children's Room at 
the Library touches at some point all the work for children in 
Boston. There is no other place which belongs equally to 
children of every nationality, belief, section, and position ; 
consequently the problems which arise wherever children are 
in the city are of interest as affecting the work here." 

The number of books issued to applicants in the room has 
been 63,993, as against 64,686 the preceding year. The 
number of books issued from the room to the branches was 
12,797, as against 9,511 the preceding year. 



26 City Document No. 24. 



The Patent Room. 

The room formerly occupied by the Bindery and Printing 
Establishments is nearly ready for the use, of the Patent 
Department, and the' books will be transferred about the 
first of March. By this change more space and light will be 
obtained, and the patents will be more accessible. 

The numerical list of German patents is practically com- 
pleted. The single numbers of the specifications and draw- 
ings of American patents issued prior to July, 1869, for which 
the sum of one thousand dollars was sent to the Commissioner 
of Patents in September, 1897, have been nearly all received. 

The reference books have been re-classified and numbered. 
A collection of trade catalogues has been made. 

According to the report of ^Ir. Frank C. Blaisdell, the 
Custodian, as far as a count could be made, 68,335 books 
have been consulted during the year by 3,185 persons. 

The nunilier of volumes in the Patent Room is 9,122, 
divided as follows : 

Great Britain ..... 5,404 

United States 1,042 

Germany ...... 699 

Ik'lgium ...... 05 

France . . . . . . 415 

Other countries ..... 72 

Reference books ..... 1,425 

The publications of Italy and Switzerland are needed. 
A picture of the new Patent Ixoom is to V)e found on 
another page. 

Periodicals. 

Fifty-seven new periodicals have been added to the Peri- 
odical Room and forty-nine have ])eon discontinued or ceased 
publication. 

During the year specimen num])ers of 321 new periodicals 
were received, with a re([uest of this Library to buy or 
receive them by gift. 

Of bound volumes, 30,478 have been consulted by readers, 
and 32,357 unlxmnd back numbers; the use of newly pub- 
lished periodicals is not counted. 

A new List of current periodicals in the Reading Room is 
ready to be printed. 

The use of tlie room appears to have been larger tlian in 
the year pi-eceding. 



T.iBRARY Department. 27 



Newspapers. 



There are 356 newspapers (including duplicates) in the 
Newspaper Room. These find constant use and the space at 
command is at times insufficient. The largest numl)er of 
j)ersons present at any one time was 161. 

Many volumes have recently been bound, and the use of them 
has much increased thereby, the record showing that 19,256 
volumes have been consulted during the year. The rooms 
for bound newspapers are to be connected with the new Pat- 
ent Room, where the volumes can be used more conveniently 
than in their present location. The number of bound vol- 
umes, including duplicates, is 6,256. A large accumulation 
of unbound matter is being gradually arranged for binding. 

There has been stored at the Brighton Branch a vast mass 
of newspapers and periodicals. These have been examined, 
and all duplicates and other publications not needed have 
been disposed of by sale or exchange. 

Lectures. 

The third course of free lectures under the auspices of the 
Trustees of the Library was given in March, April, and May, 
1902, in the Lecture Room of the Library, on the JEsthetic 
development of cities, the speakers and subjects being as 
follows : Mr. Albert Kelsey, The city of the future ; Mr. 
C Howard Walker, City streets and squares ; Mr. R. Clip- 
ston Sturgis, Small houses and the grounds about them ; 
Mr. John DeWitt Warner, Public advertising; Mr. Edmund 
M. Wheelwright, Bridges; Mr. F. W. Ruckstuhl, The 
proper function of open air statuary; Mr. F. L. Olmsted, 
jr., The City of Washington, its plan and its possibilities ; 
Mr. John Woodbury, Water parks ; JNIr. Brooks Adams, The 
purpose for which a city may reasonably encourage art. 
Most of the lectures were illustrated by the stereopticon. 

The Library Lecture Room has been used for the meetings 
of numerous societies. The first session of the general meet- 
ing of the American Library Association was held here, also 
meetings of the American Oriental Society, the Massachu- 
setts Library Club, and other organizations. 

The Branch System. 

The following account of the work of the Branch Depart- 
ment for the year is taken from the report of Mr. Langdon 
L. Ward, the Supervisor of Branches and Stations. 



28 City Document No. 24. 



USE. 

The total home use of the branches for the year is 752,411 
volumes, a gain of only 6,681 volumes over the year before. 

The percentage of fiction has declined only a little this 
year, with a greatly reduced supply of current fiction. This 
is probably due to the open shelves, and means that the pub- 
lic is reading the old fiction. But it seems e\ddent that an 
improvement in the quality of the reading must eventually 
result from a small supply of fiction and a liberal supply of 
other attractive books. 

DEPOSIT AVORK. 

The branches as centres of distribution have increased 
their work largely. The number of schools which the}' now 
regularly supply is forty, as against twenty-six a year ago. 
Tlie number of volumes they have sent on deposit is 11,107» 
as against 5,426 in the year 1901. 

The deposit function is comparatively a new one for the 
blanches, but it has already proved of value in utilizing to 
the utmost their collections of books, and relieving the Cen- 
tral Library from demands which it could not easily satisfy. 

The branch custodians have been asked to compile a list 
of the institutions of their district, with information about 
them, on cards which are being revised and filed at the Cen- 
tral Library. In general, the relations between the branch 
libraries and the institutions in their districts have been 
greatly strengthened during the year. This tends to increase 
the constituency and to make each branch used. 

INSTRUCTION OF EMPLOYEES. 

In a branch library where duties are necessarily general, 
rather than highly specialized, it is desirable that each attend- 
ant should know accurately all the details of the work. 
Hence a definite system of instruction which could not be 
evaded seemed necessary, and was begun about a year ago. 
This is the method of written question and answer. The 
object is not so much to test knowledge as to get an assur- 
ance that it has been acquired. 

What perhaps differentiates these examination papers from 
others is their practical character. They deal with library 
science only as applied to the Boston Public Library in its 
branch department. This is believed to be a necessary and 
useful limitation. The result is that most of the employees 
feel that the questions instead of being a burden are an 
opportunity. The pipers which have been issued have dealt 



Library Department. 29 

chiefly with the card catalogue and the Branch Finding List. 
Latei-, the books of the collections will be taken up, but a 
thorough knowledge of the catalogues and finding lists is of 
the first importance in assisting the public. 

EXTENSION OF HOURS. 

The extension of hours, which was begun in January, 1902, 
has proved valuable. The Jamaica Plain Branch, which did 
not make the change last year, adopted it on December 15th 
last, so that all the branches except West Roxbury are now 
open till 9 P.M. every week-day. The Jamaica Plain Branch 
has also been open on Sunday since January last, and the 
South End and West Roxbury Branches are the only ones 
which remain closed on that day during the winter, the former 
because of its nearness to the Central Library. The statistics 
of Sunday attendance and issue at the branches show a marked 
increase. 

BOOKS AND CATALOGUES. 

The event of the year has been the issue of the consoli- 
dated Branch Finding List, for which preparations have been 
made for a long time. The previous lists have been only of 
accessions since June 1, 1897, but this one, which is the fifth 
of the series, contains all the important titles common to the 
branches, to the number of about 5,500. It represents natu- 
rally the newer books and those most in demand. Instead of 
an annual edition of the Branch Finding List, it will be prac- 
ticable, for three years or more, merely to enter the accessions 
in the Monthly Bulletin, and to publish them in the Annual 
List at the end of each year. 

The new books for the branches number 4,559 volumes for 
the year, as against 6,414 in 1901 ; the replacements, 2,719, as 
against 2,272 in 1901. Of current fiction there were bought 
onl}- 711 volumes — representing sixty-three titles — as against 
2,187 volumes the year before. 

REPAIRS AND IMPROVEMENTS. 

As usual, a considerable amount of furniture has been pro- 
vided for the branches. Several lunch-rooms for the em- 
ployees have been fitted up. The interior of the South End 
Branch has been replastered and repainted. In addition to 
considerable improvements in light and heating, ventilation 
has received attention, and various devices have been employed 
at certain branches. 



30 City Document No, 24. 



EXPENDITUEES. 



The cost of the branches has been $5-i,478.78, as against 
$55,435.90 m 1901. Allowance must be made, however, for 
the bind hi g of the fiction and juvenile books since July, which 
does not appear here. The amount spent for books is 
11,231.16 less than in 1901. 

SERVICE. 

Besides minor changes in the personnel of the branches, 
including changes of janitors at Brighton, Dorchester, and Ja- 
maica Plain, ]\liss Alice ]M. Robinson was appointed Custo- 
dian of the South Boston Branch in ^Nlarch last, in place of 
Miss N. J. BuUard, who had resigned after nearly twenty 
years of service. 

An additional assistant has been employed at the Jamaica 
Plain Branch. \ 

MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVITIES. 

The branch officers have recently been directed to keep a 
record of the use of each book in their collection by placing 
the stamp of the year upon the book card, which serves as a 
charging slip, and filing the card when it is filled. 

The back numbers of certain foreign periodicals have been 
sent from the Central Library to branches and stations where 
there seemed to be a demand for them, and the practice was 
extended to newspapers tliis year on the recommendation of 
the Examining Committee. For example, two Greek news- 
papers, one published at Athens and the other at New York, 
are sent regularly to Station P, which is situated in a district 
where many (i recks live. 

Schools. 

As has been seen, the close of the year 1902-03 finds the 
Library supplying with deposits of books sixty-six public 
schools, as against fort3--f()ur at the end of the previous year. 
Many more classes in individual schools ai-e supplied than 
last year, and the exchanges are more frequent. The total 
number of volumes sent to the schools was 12,261, as against 
5,820 in tlie previous year. 

Applications for cards have been taken again in nearly all 
the high and grammar schools of the city. The labor and 
time involved have been naturally much less this j^ear. 

Further effort has been made to provide books suitable for 
school children at the branches and in the deposit collection. 
Books on geography were purchased to meet an insistent 



Librae Y Department. 31 

demand, and many very juvenile books on all subjects were 
added. Good books of the latter class are very rare. In 
the case of high schools, the books regularly in demand 
which the branches could not furnish have been systematic- 
ally added to all the branches, as well as an additional copy 
or two to the Central Library. 

Twenty-seven vacation schools and playgrounds were sup- 
plied during the summer, eleven of them from the branches. 

Four evening schools are now supplied with books as 
against none last year. 

With the officers of the city schools there has been con- 
tinued cooperation. The report of the Superintendent for 
the year 1901 summed up thoroughly the work of the 
Library, and helped to increase interest among the teachers. 
He has recently issued a circular recommended by the Com- 
mittee on Cooperation, in which special attention is called 
to the instruction in the use of the Library which is given 
in the form of talks by the head of the Children's Room 
at the Central Library, and to the facilities offered at the 
branches to teachers who wish to bring classes during 
school hours. 

The school children now crowd the branches. As one 
custodian says in her report : " The children are beginning 
to monopolize the branch." But this difficulty can be met. 

From a library standpoint the parochial schools may be 
considered public schools. By an arrangement therefore 
with the Supervisor of Parochial Schools, deposits of books 
have lately been sent by the Library to six of them designated 
by him. I have visited each one of these schools. 

Stations. 

The stations, schools, institutions, and engine-houses show 
a total circulation of 426,281, a gain of 4,116 volumes over 
the previous year. Twelve stations have lost in circulation. 

The cost of the stations has been $22,074.94, as against 
$20,413.28 in 1901. The expense of Station C (Parker 
Memorial), of the enlargement of Station F (Mt. Bowdoin 
Reading Room), and of a third wagon are the chief 
causes of this increase. 

On March 31 last, Station C, the South End Reading 
Room, was opened at 55 Berkeley street. This raised the 
number of service stations to thirteen. The station occupies 
a large room on the ground floor with space for sixty readers. 
It is well supplied with reference books and magazines. The 
room, together with heat and janitor service, was offered to 



22 City Document No. 24. 

the Library by the Benevolent Fraternity of Churches, and 
the station is therefore a cooperative one, like Stations N, S, 
U, and W. The givers also lent a collection of over five 
hundred books, and have provided regularly several news- 
papers. Owing to its nearness to the South End Branch 
and Station P (Broadway Extension) — which badly lacked 
space for readers — Station C was expected to supplement 
these agencies rather than to develop a large circulation of 
its own. And in fact it has been primarily a reading room, 
though the circulation has been respectable, amounting for 
ten months to 8,501 volumes. 

The result in one case of cooperation between tlie Library 
and other organizations may be seen by the following quota- 
tion taken from the Catholic Associate, published by the 
Catholic Young Men's Association of St. Patrick's Church, 
which has given rooms, heat, light, and janitor service for 
Station N since its opening in August, 1900 : 

"TJie Association has had no cause to regret its action. 
. . . There is no need for children in the district to read 
'dime novels' or for adults to read trash. . . . Go to the 
Library and get a card. . . . When no one in the family 
patronizes the Public Library you are paying for what you 
■do not use. This may be charitable on your part, but it is 
not altogether creditable unless you yourself have a good 
selection of books at home.'' 

At Station W (North Bennet Street Industrial School) a 
new reading room for women and older giils has been 
opened. It continues to be true that this station draws more 
books by several thousand volumes yearly from the Central 
Library than any other station or branch. 

Tliough 540 volumes have been added this year to the 
permanent collection of Station B (Roslindale Reading 
Room), yet with less than 8,000 volumes on the shelves it 
could not be expected to maintain the last year's circulation 
-of 44,870 volumes, more than that of some branches. Yet 
it has almost done so, the circulation for this year being 
42,779 volumes. Of late the reading room has received 
regularly most of the cun-ent books which are sent to the 
branches. 

Station F, the Mt. Bowdoin Reading Room, has been 
enlarged to double its size, and new furniture has been pro- 
vided. New books to the amount of about 500 volumes 
have been bought. An assistant to the Custodian has been 
engaged, and the hours considerably extended. The circula- 
tion lias increased more than 4,000 volumes. General Hazard 
Stevens and other residents of Mt. Bowdoui have given 
pictures and plants to the value of 845. 



Library Department. 33 

Station P (Broadway Extension), has a large circulation, 
amounting this year to 32,019 volumes, and a large number 
of readers. The sanitary conditions, which are very bad, 
were investigated by the Board of Health in October. Some 
additional ventilation has been provided, and the possibility 
of new quarters considered, but the proposed changes were 
not found practicable. Twice the space now occupied would 
be none too much for this reading room. It is, for adults as 
well as children, a real educational force in the district. 
Although the circulation of the station has been a little 
greater for the year, within the last few months it has shown 
a decrease. I quote the following passage from the report 
of the custodian : 

" To this lack of popular fiction nine out of ten of our 
constituents would lay the decrease of circulation. The 
tenth man, being more observing, would say that the decrease 
would have been much more but for the strength of the 
deposit fiction collection and the effort made to bring forward 
forgotten good old novels. There is a certain satisfaction in 
catering to a people without preconceived ideas who will read 
anything th^t interests them without reference to the reviews 
of the Bookman or the Nation. They may prefer the last 
book advertised in the street cars, but they will read an 
attractive story of any period." 

Reference work at the service stations has been encour- 
aged in all practicable ways. From twenty to forty impor- 
tant reference books have been added to the collection at 
each station. The total number of books of reference at the 
ordinary service station is now one hundred and fifty. More 
are needed, but the equipment of the service stations for 
reference work is no longer entirely inadequate. 

SHOP STATIONS. 

On November 1 last, Station K, Bird-street Delivery Sta- 
tion, was discontinued upon the resignation of the Custodian. 
This discontinuance of the station reduces the number of 
shop stations to eight. 

OTHER AGENCIES. 

The institutions supplied number twice as many as last 
year. In connection with the Anna Ticknor Library, circu- 
lars have been sent to a number of institutions, calling atten- 
tion to the opportunity which it offers. 

In August last a collection of books — largely books on 
nature — was sent to a reading room in the Refectory Build- 



34 City Document No. 24. 

ino- at Franklin Park, which had been opened b}- the Park 
Commissioners. Since then the deposit has been enlarged 
and a delivery of books from the Central Library three times 
a week has been established. The methods are those of the 
Library, though the expense has been borne by the Park 
Commissioners. 



Central Libeaky Activities. 

deposit work. 

The various Library agencies have received on deposit this 
year from the Central Library 31,382 volumes, as against 
28,228 volumes in 1901, a gain of 11 per cent. The de- 
posit collection has gained 4,776 volumes, and at present 
consists of 21,221 volumes, of which 49^^^ per cent, are 
fiction, as against 16,445 volumes, of which 63 per cent, 
were fiction, a year ago. 

About half the accessions for the year are included in the 
Anna Ticknor Library of more than 2,500 volumes — for- 
merly that of the Society to Encourage Studies at Home — 
which was given by the directors of the Anna Ticknor 
Library Association to form a part of the deposit collection, 
for the benefit of schools, study-clubs and other educational 
institutions. This is a finely selected collection of books, 
planned and excellently adapted for educational purposes. 

THE DAILY ISSUE. 

The daily issue of books on borrowers' cards sent in from 
the branches and stations amounted this year to 108,554 
volumes, 2,878 volumes, or 2^^^ per cent., less than the year 
before. The proportion of unsuccessful cards was 46 per 
cent., as against 45 per cent, in 1901. The percentage of 
fiction is 71 -^^ per cent., against 80 per cent. 

The smaller total issue is to be attributed to several causes, 
among which are probably a nuuh smaller supply of current 
fiction and a greatly increased supply of standaixi books at 
the outlying agencies. The percentage of fiction has been 
considerably diminished, and this improvement in quality 
more than offsets the loss in quantity. 

Since July 14 last the fiction and juvenile books have 
been sent to the Library bindery instead of to an outside 
bindery. 



LiBKAKY Department. 35 



SHIPPING ROOM. 

On July 1 last a third wagon was engaged for regular 
work. This wagon enables us to care directly for the West 
Roxbury route — that is, the West Roxbury and Jamaica 
Plain Branches and Stations B andC — where the transporta- 
tion was formerly done by a local express. It also enables 
us to provide for most of the bundle work and the transpor- 
tation between the Bindery and Printing Departments and 
the Central Library, and to deliver directly at many schools 
and places of deposit which it was not possible to reach 
before. 

Examinations. 

The follov/ing examinations have been held for the graded 
service of the Library, namely : February 15, Grade B (33 
applicants) ; February 15, Grade C (64 applicants) ; May 
10, Grade E (57 applicants) ; September 23, Grade E (50 
applicants); October 14, Grade B (18 applicants); January 
3, Grade E (40 applicants).

REPORT OF THE EXAMINING COMMITTEE 
FOR 1902-1903. 



Boston, Mass., February 6, 1903. 

The Board of Trustees of the JBostoji Public Library : 

Gentlemen, — I enclose herewith my report as Chairman of 
the Examining Committee for the last fiscal year. 

The report naturally divides itself into the following subjects : 

1. Administration. 

2. Branches and new modes of distribution. 

3. Catalogues, bulletins and finding lists. 

4. Finance. 

5. Printing and binding. 

1. Administration. — The Committee hope that some further 
efforts be made to obtain a wider circle of readers, and to this end 
would suggest, if possible, some form of advertising, not, of 
course, too obtrusive. For example, stations might be more 
prominently placed and fitted on the outside with signs that will 
attract the passers by. Perhaps excerpts from the Monthly 
Bulletin might be advertised in the papers. A conference 
between school supervisors and library authorities is also recom- 
mended, and the advisability of mailing Monthly Bulletins to the 
heads of all educational institutions in the city should be 
considered. 

2. Branches and New 3fodes of J)istributio7i. — The general 
scheme of cooperation between the Library and the schools is 
successful. The Finding List of books common to the branches, 
which has recently been published, has proved most successful. 
The Committee recommend that the number of reading rooms be 
increased, and that more books suitable to children be placed in 
the branches and reading rooms. Foreign newspapers, after 
having served their purpose in the Central Library, it is recom- 
mended be sent to those reading rooms which may find use for 
them. 

3. Catalogues, Bulletins, and F'inding Lists . — The Com- 
mittee have no suggestion to make on this subject. The work 
seems to be most satisfactorily performed. 

4. Finance. — The Committee deem it advisable and accord- 
ingly recommend that some means be taken of bringing the 
Library to the attention of persons of wealth, with the hope that 
they will contribute to it. Of the largest gifts to the Library 
nearly all were made years ago, and for the most part the donors 
were non-residents. These bequests, however, have been steadily

dwindling. The Public Library, while primarily owned by the 
people of Boston, yet serves the cause of scholarship, and might 
be said in a sense to belong to scholars of every land, and it 
should be the recipient of gifts and bequests from benevolent 
testators, as are the great pubUc charities of the city and vicinity. 

The Committee believe that the Trustees should always have in 
hand a fund with which to take immediate advantage of any offer- 
ins; for sale of rare books, particularly such as relate to Boston. 

While it might be difficult at the present time to secure a 
special appropriation for this purpose, yet the Committee see no 
reason why the Trustees should not, temporarily at least, set 
aside, out of the cun-ent general appropriation for the purchase 
of books, a fund of five thousand dollars or more, and hold the 
same until the end of the fiscal year for the purchase of such rare 
and desirable books as may be offered. 

5. Printing and Bindimj. — The Printing Office and Bindery 
were moved during the past sunnner to commodious quarters at 
42 Stanhope street. The Bindery has a force nearly one-half 
larger than before, and is now able to do nearly all the book- 
binding required by the Library, and do it in a superior manner. 
It seems probable that the increased capacity of the Printing 
Department will involve either the employment of a new pressman 
or the purchase of an automatic rotary press. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) C. S. IIamun, 

Chairman.

APPENDIX VIII. 



TRUSTEES FOR FIFTY-ONE YEARS. 

The Hou. Edward Everett was President of the Board of 
Trustees from 1852 to 1864; George Tickuor in 1865; William 
W. Greenougli, from 1866 to April, 1888 ; from May 7, 1888, 
to May 12, 1888, Prof. Henry W. Haynes ; Samuel A. B. 
Abbott, May 12, 1888, to April 30, 1895 ; Hon. F. O. Prince, 
October 8, 1896, to May 8, 1899; Hon. Solomon Lincoln has 
served since May 12, 1899. 

The Board for 1852 was a preliminary organization; that for 
1853 made what is called the first annual report. At first it con- 
sisted of one alderman and one common councilman and five 
citizens at large until 1867, when a revised ordinance made it to 
consist of one alderman, two common councilmen, and six citizens 
at large, two of whom retired, unless reiilected, each year, while 
the members from the City Council were elected yearly. In 1878 
the organization of the Board was changed to include one alder- 
man, one councilman, and five citizens at large, as before 1867 ; 
and in 1885, by the provisions of the amended city charter, the 
representation of the City Government upon the Board by an 
alderman and a councilman was abolished, leaving the Board 
as at present, consisting of five citizens at large, appointed by the 
Mayor.
