Deceraber 31, 1939 on "The Children's Fund", given

TViP Director presented to the Board a ooimiuidcation, under date of 
n K ^f from So Service Oomicil of the iJoston ?uolio Liorary ri'iployeos 
Sir/'s^oiatiof requ^in, that the Iru.tees give consideration to a re- 
^siin of the basis upon x.hich increases in pay are „iven lo the stall for 
Ton^ se^ce! He staLd that the Service Jounoil in its presentation set 
forth t^ whereas f orioerly individuals entered the service at a very early 
age now th^ average age of 'appointment to the Library f -i-^^^Pf-^'^frv^^ 
tnrt that consequently this mesuit that under the present plan ol lon^^ ■'^"^f 
pt^!;t /e^S s i^ the f utu^^^^^^^^^^

Oirectofpresenterschedules for the period 19UO-19U5 sho'.ri.ng 1i^ approxaanate 
cosro? operation of the several plans as cor.pored vdth the Pf =^"* P^f ' '^ 
stated that the sur. ested plans x.ould involve increased annual costs to the 
Library r^ing ap^roxi^nat^ly from .2000 to $1)^000 respectively. 

After a discussion of the proposal of the Service Council in its re- 
lation tf the existi^ proble,. of 'the disproportion between the a^aounts appro- 
oriated for thHurchase of books and for salaries, it was ai^reed that it 
vould be^wise for the Joard to extend the system of loni. service pay:aents, 
ZticSaS^Tin v?ew of the fact that stories are at a much higher level ior 
O^ teJi^s of the staff thai, was the case when there had been aoop^ed in 1923 
the plan at present in force. 

It was --^ -f4-J-:t^ 

:i^atLrs^/Uerthf proportion: ^pent for salaries and for boo.s^^^ ^^^^ 
as set forth in the report of the Examinine Gonmattee for 1939, ana in conoidera 
Sofof the extensive Additional amounts which must be appropriated ior the 
re^M- step rate an.1 ^rade increases in pay, if such are to oe ^iven m 19U0, 
It"S»s clea^ to the ^oard that there is no likelihood of extending; tne oasis 
ipon which l^e service increases in pay have been .raaited up to now out .hat 
if th-Tcrvice council wishes nevertheless to brint^ its own presentation of tlie 
mitte^ tHhe attention of the ^oard, the .ioard is willing to hear its repre- 

sentatives. 

The Jirector announced that the i^xecutive Council of the Ai^ierloa.. Library 
Association had decided to hold the annual conierence of tlie ^nerxcan Library 
Association in j3oston in 19U1. 

The Director presented to the board a list of namesof individuals who, 
althouc-h eljcdble for step rate and grade increases m pay m 1939, had not 
?tce?ved thS because of there having been set an arbitrary li.,at of .2100 per 
annur,! or ..i+0.00 per week ueyond w.dch increases were not to be granted m 1939. 
?Se Director stated that the hayor had decided that, masr.ucn as i.K.iyi..uals in 
those departments not under his jurisdiction had bee.i granted step rate in- 
creases in pay both in 193b and 1939 even beyond .2100 p<.r annura or vUO.oO per 
week, there was being created a maladjustment bet;.een conloriang and noncon- 
forioin. departments that seemed unfair to the confonoing aepai-tf.ients. ilie 
Director stated that the .layor had therefore issued instructions t-hat sx,ep rate 
increases in pay be resumed in such cases, the step rate increases .o become 
elective as of December 27, 1939. ^'ter discussion of the matter it was ^reed 
that the Library Department should confom with the practice m effect m other 
city departments, and it was therefore

that he had oeen infonaed that a further payraent of some .^7,000 had been 
turned over by Ilr. Clarke's son in his father's behalf, bringing the total 
pa;;)Tnents to date to ai) proximately ^30,000, the sum wliich it had oeen stated

tion to cover cxjDenditures during January and February pending tlie passage of

apparently on expenditures during the sajue period in 1939, with the exception 
that no provision had oeen made for any purchases under Item G (Equipment), 
the Item from which purchases of books are made, he stated that there sub- 
sequently had been made an adjustment, so tiiat there would be available during

The .resident read a letter, imder today's date, from the Service Council 
of the Boston Public Library iT-ployees Benefit A;.sociation in wrdcli the oervice 
Council had stated that it would like to avail itself of the opportum.ty offered 
it by the Tructees to nalce its oim presentation in the matter of recognition of 
25 years' service. The idrector was requested to inform the oervice Council of 
the Boston .^ublic Library Lriployees iienefit Association tliat the Trustees would 
be glad to have cone to the next meeting of the Board tliree representatives of 
the^oervice C>ouncil to offer its presentation of the matter, and also to inform 
the Boston Library Glub that three representatives from its oriianization would 
be welcome at this sane meetin^i; if desired, inasmucn as the riatter to be dis- 
cussed is one of interest to the whole library st^iff . 

The ijirector reported that at the sut^tjestion of Mr. Gale, tlie Librarj^'s 
consulting- arcliitect, the problem of adequate li-;htin{j of the noly or ail murals 
had been discussed vjith Mr. Vdllard Vj. Thoipson, of the Thompson iiin^^ineered 
Lighting Co., 126 iJewbur^^ street, Boston, llie Jirector stated that as a result 
of\is study hr. Thompson had proposed that tliere oe tried as an experiiiient in 
one section of the Abbey iioom a form of lijitinc wiiich he believed ..d-i^ht solve 
the problem, such e:q3eriiuent;iLl. insoallation to cost approxii.iaoely v200; and that, 
if tnis experiiTiental li^iitin^^ sliould prove satisfactory, Mr. Thompson oelieved 
that the entire li lilting of the room under such a plan could oe done at aii 
approximate cost of $3500. The Jirector was requested to proceed vath the pro- 
posed experii'iental installation. 

Tlie Director presented to the Board a communication from Joseph G. ..hite, 
Ohairman of the ::ichooi Gomioittee, relative to makint; available an unused school- 
house for a branch library for the :Lr;leston Square section, as had been re- 
quested by ITie Fra-l:lin Blub of Jamaica Plain in a letter to Lr. '.aiite, under 
date of December 7, 1939 • 

'The >)irector re orted that the unused school building above referred to 
was one on Din;ell Street, l/ard 11, tnat wliile those residing v/itidn a smcill 
radius of tViis location axe a; .^proximately a little more tnan a mile iroi. their 
nearest branch library, nevertlieless a larij;e section of tliis area is (jiven over 
to the Boston park system and therefore contains no dv/ellin^js. Ke stated that, 
iTith tills consideration in mind and in view of tlie fact tliat certain other sec- 
tions of the city were no more adequately covered, it was his opinion that the 
Liorary would not be justified in talcing the suggested action toward establish- 
ing an a-dditional branch library. The Director stated, however, that he would 
investigate further the matter of deposits within tiie schools in that section 
of the city vjith a view to possibly increasinj^ the nuiauer of deposits to ensure 
adequate library provision for the school children of the district. 

The .Jirector was requested to send on behalf of the Board a reply to 
Hr. ..hite alon^; the above lines, and indicatin^^ also that the Trustees are not 
in any case possessed of the necessary funds to extend tiie present plant of the 
Library.

Prior to the regular meeting of the Trustees on February- 2, 19i;0, 
with Messrs. j)U:<:ton, hall, Kirstein, and Lord present, a hearing was granted 
to representatives of Library staff organizations in the matter of long 
service payiiients. 

There were present three representatives from the oervice Council 
of the Boston Public Library Employees Benefit nssociation , namely, Idss i'anny 
Goldstein, Me Patrick 0. Mui^tagh, and Mr. Morris J. .iosenbergj and three repre- 
sentatives from the jioston Library Club, Li.ployees of the Boston Public Library , 
namely, Miss Lilian Arnold, iir. Bdward F. L, Casey, ana Idss Veronica Moran, 

Miss Goldstein, speakin^^ on behalf of her coiroidLtee, stated tliat it 
was cognizant that the Trustees have iriany Liatters before them, but that the 
matter which her corirdLtee xdshed to present is one that vitally al'fects the 
welfare and good idll of the staff. Biie stated that the matter dated back 
13 or 17 3''ears to the time of tlie initiation of the long service bonus system, 
that it had been the staff's unaersoanding that wiien the bonus system was first 
introduced it v/as instituted in order to result eventually in increased pension 
ar.iounts, the system of compulsory retirement corning into effect at that same 
period, Mdss Goldstein stated that if tne pension system had gone into effect 
xdthout the bonus the retirement amounts of staff members would have been very 
little, as little as that received froii Uie city by day laborers, for at the 
time it went into effect many of tlie Library employees were not paid laore than 
vlO per \;eek after 3^ years of service. She stated that the bonus had greatly 
helped this group, many of whom came into service oefore the turn of tlie 
century at a very young age, receiving a salary of v3 per week. 

Miss Goldstein stated that now a new group found itself at a dis- 
advantage, those meiabers of the staff who had come into service at the turn 
of the century and somewhat later at compai^atively low rates of pay. In 
connection ;dth the situation in wiiich the above group finds itself she pointed 
out that the people taken into service in recent years entered at a much greater 
rate of pay than had prevailed for those coming in ai^ound the turn of the 
century, a fact which vdll greatly increase their pension amounts vjhen they 
retire. Miss ..oldstein then called to the attention of the Board the several 
plans for a revision of the bonus system as auvaxiced by the Service Council 
in its recent conferences Tdth tiie jirector. She stated tiiat the basis for 
the revision proposed by her Comidttee v/as recogidtion of 2$ years of service 
as the point at ^-jiiich action in the matter of lon.,^ service recognition sliould 
l:>e effective, a practice xmich she stated was customary in maiiy institutions 
and business houses. 

Idss v:'Oldstein then presented the case as it relates to those laembers 
of the staff \-A\q have entered the service in recent years. She pointed out 
that the average age of appointment to the service is now 2$ years as against 
the former high school and graiTu.iar school age of appointr;ient of employees, and 
that those, therefore, nov/ coning into service idll not receive a bonus until 
they are ap^^roxiriiately 6o years old. one indicated tiiat v/ith the trend toward 
social security and the tendency of the day toward earlier retireirent many 
will never receive a "bonus.

Hiss Goldstein thereupon suxai.ied up for her cor,Trrdttee its reason for 
pre-entir - the problem to the Trustees, stating that it was not for the purpose 
of inforiiiinp- the Trustees what her j^roup wanted in the- way of a laonetary cUiiomit, 
but rather to present the [Toup's belief that 23' years is the lo£p.cal -Ginie at 
which to recop-nize Ion service, to bring to x-he board's attention the several 
schemes proposed for lonr service payments presented recently to i-he director, 
and to suggest consideration of a sliding of tiie scale of lon^ service reco^ra- 
tion from 3^ to 2^ years service. 

The President rej^lied on behalf of the Trustees that the rioard was con- 
scious that 2$ years was a very creditable record of service, but tiiat it felt 
certain that the oervice Council would understand that, in view of tne present 
financial situation of the city and with the uncertainity of the ability to crant 
even step rate and crade increases in pay during the present year, the board was 
not in a situation to talce any action leadinc; toward an increase m the appro- 
priation for salaries. The President also drew the pai-ticuiar attention oi uie 
employee [^rouDs' representatives to the criticism of the disproportion between 
the amounts expended for salaries and for books apj^-earin^, in tne ileport of tne 
LiXamininc Cormrdttee for 19 3^ • 

Miss Goldstein then called attention to the su^oiestion offered by tlie 
Service Council of a recognition of 25 years of service by tne ^rantinB of an 
additional month's vacation, a uasis of recoi^nition of lon^, service oioen 
used in institutions and business houses, ^he stated tiiat such vacations could 
be arran ed irf thout aiiy increased cost to the Library in tiie same maimer m 
which at'present cases of absence for illness are cared for aiaon^ meinbers of the 
staff, and that she had been infonned by the i^irector that the number involved 
would reach I|0 during- l^i^O. She stated that the issue was not so mucii the 
question of additional monetary increment as the estaolisliment of the period 
of lon^; service recornition at 2$ years. 

Also speaJcin^ for the Service Council, hr. Lurta-h informed the iSoard 
that a department store allowed an extra two weeks vacation after 2b years ser- 
vice 



and tliat another also rave recognition to long service tiirough the 



granting of extra vacation time. 

The members of the comjndttees having coi.pleted their presentation liien 
vathdrew. 

Upon the ^o.thdrawal of the representatives, the joard discussed the 
sut^restion of the Service Council that a longer vacation period be granted in 
recognition of the attainraent of 2$ years of service. The .dree tor was re- 
quested to malce inquiry as to whether an additional U v/eeks vacation could oe 
arrane,ed without expense for all those who have been in tlie Library service for 
25 to'^35 years ajid to report to the board at a subsequent meeting.

The Director stated that nembers of the staff of the Library had this 
year pledged in the Goiiuauiiity i^'und Gajapaisn the amount of ^3',Iil6.7t), ohe quota 
for the Library set for this year having been in the amount of v3'^U00. 

The jJirector reported further in the matter of a choice of a consulting 
architect in succession to Edwards tJ • uede, uho had oeen the Library's consul tin^^ 
architect for many years and vjho had indicated tliat he vias not able longer to 
continue. The Jirector stated that follovmi;^ tlie iiieetin^i of i^ecenoer 1^ he iiad 
talked liith i-.r. VJilliai.i Emerson coiicerniii^ a possible sucessor to Lr. Gc'le and 
that he had how received, under date of Jaiiuary 19, a letter from ur. iiinerson 
in recorariendation of tiie fina of iuies and Uiiild, i,-.0 Beacon otreet, boston, as in 
his opijiion uest suited to meet the needs of uhe Joston xublic Liorary. ^"ter a 
discussion of the recommendation it was a^^reed Uiat rir. Hall should iiiaive further 
inquiry in the matter and report to the board. 

'The .Urector presented for the consideration of the board a proposal for 
a joint stora^j^e warehouse for libraries of the dreater boston area. The ojirector 
stated that the ori[:,inal sutj^^estion for such a project dated back to President 
Eliot, that the present proposal was a suggestion that the harvard (Jorrioration 
would probably lool: favorably upon iaakin^ a donation of land for the puri-iose on 
the Joston side of the river, ixith the possibility of tiie first unit oeing erected 
perhaps by one of the ^reat foundations, suci^ as the Jarner;ie Corporation. Tlie 
Director stated that this was merely a preliminary' proposal containing no estijuates 
of cOots and was subi:dtted for consideration only. He stated further that he had 
not as yet discussed the matter with the Corporation Counsel. 

'Tlie Jirector reported that tnerc had been called oy the Aiaerican Library 
Associrtion in :lew York on Januciry 29 a conference to consider the action of cer- 
tain publisiiers in the matter of the stipulation imposed by then in their contracts 
with booksellers whereby public libraries were to be allowed only at 2^;^ discount 
on book purchases. The director stated that he had attended this coni'erence at 
which there v:ere present about 1>0 librarians and k9 publishers. The Director 
stated that tiie aforesaid action on the part of the publishers would seriously 
hamper the pure /.a sing power of the libraries wliich formerly had oeen receivj.ng 
about 33% "bo y^'/o in discounts, and that it was hoped that furtner joint discussion 
of the problem between publishers and librarians would lead to aii adjustment 
of the situation. 

It vjas 

VOTED: that there be paid the traveling; exi^enses of Liltori L. Lord, 
JJirector and Librarian, in the amount of tv;enty-iive dollars 
and sixty-six cents (^;'25«66) to UeM York and return on 
Januaxy 27-29, 191^0, incui'red by liii'i in connection ^ath 
attendance at a coni'erence between librarians and puolishers 
on library discounts. 

The Jirector presented for the consideration of the .^oard the suggestion 
of the Budget GoLHiiiL-sioner that the Librar^^ chaiv,e its present plan of renting 
typewriters for \.PA projects to a plan on the rental -pure base basis. The director 
reported that the present cost for rental of t^.'pei/riters was ap])roximately v750 
per month as against an approxiiaate ^1000 cost per i .onth on a rental -purchase 
basis. The i.irector stated that the budget Comi.iissicner was desirous of obtain- 
ing for eventual uoe in other city depai'tments iiiacliines acquired under such a 
rental-purchase plan by the Librc^y which mignt not be needed by it \fnen 'die 
projects should no longer be in operation.

The Board discussed the suggestioxi of the Budget Commissioner from 
the point of view of the increase in the Libraiy's appropriation wliich such 
a procedure vrould entail. It v/as agreed that the Director should request in 
i^nriting conl'irroation froi.i the budget Commissioner tliat such an undertaking 
at increased cost to the Library Department would not cause any commensurate 
decrease in the Library's other budget items, but that provision for the 
additional e:q:)enoe involved "would be provided in the H Account for relief 
projects, and should state that under such circumstances the Trustees would 
be glad to malce the change froi.i thieir present plan of renting typewriters 



k-*. 



The Director reported that the budget allowances for the Library 
for 19hO as submitted by the mayor to the City Council on Janu^^ry 29 were 
in the amount of .pl,291,o3'l?» 

The Director reported that the Mayor had proposed that there be 
provided an amount of approximately s>70,000 'oy special appropriation to 
begin the repair of the rxjof of the Gentrcil Liorary building. He stated 
that the present proposal was for a plan whereby the roof would be done in 
quarter sections, although this vjas somewhat more expensive than to do it 
all at once. He stated that tiie front section facing Copley Square, the 
largest section, would be done first under such a plan. The uirector also 
reported that the Library's engdneers, the J. it, ..orcester Company, had 
suggested that a cork insulation under the roof be installed, that this 
could be done probably idthout unduly exceeding the present estimates and 
might well result in a saving from present heating loss of as much as 
$2i|00 per year. 

In the matter of the proposed survey of the boston Public Library, 
as SU; ;gested in a recent conference witn the ha^'or, the Director stated that 
he favored having a survey made. He stated that he had no knowledge of any 
library survey made up to the present time by persons other than librarians. 
The President then presented a letter vrhich he had received from a Kr. it. H. 
Lasley, of II, H. Lasley, Inc., hew York City, Lngineers, making inquiry con- 
cerning the possioility of Ids firm assisting in such a survey. The director 
was requested to con.iuidcate idth lir. Lasley ;dth a view to a possible con- 
ference idth him in the matter, and, also, to look into the possioility of an 
approach to the Carnegie Corporation for its assistance in such a survey.

The Director brought to the attention of the Board the case of a member 
of the staff whose physical condition is such as to raise the question as to 
whether the Library should coni-inue her further in its service, lie su'iamitted 
for the Board's considero.tion statements of her fellovj workers concerning certain 
of her actions while on duty. He stated that while on duty slie ver^^ appsTentl^'" 
seemed to be suifer3.ng and had the oelief that the assistants about her were 
continously shouting at her, and that the situation had progressed to the state 
xihere she was of the l^elief tliat members of ohe puolic v;ere c^lso shoutin^ at her. 
The Director reported tiiat the individual in question was of an age to retire 
voluntarily if she so desired, aid ohat, if she did not i/ish -bo do so, the Library 
could request the Retirement Doard to talce action to retire her for disability. 
Ai'ter consideration 01 the statements subidtted and the presentation of Lhe 
Dj.rector, it was agreed that action should be taken looking toward tiie aforesaid 
individual's retirement from the Liorar^^ service. The Director stated uhat he 
would first broach the matter of retirement to a momber of the individual's 
fai-iily, and that, in the event her voluntary retirement was nou forthcondng, he 
vrould then talce up the matter with the Retirement Joard. 

ihe Director presented for the consideration of tiie Doard a request from 
Jeremiaii J, Danlcer, electrician, that his salry be raised from .^li'^^^OO per i-jeek 
to the .yU8.00 rate received by the Library's engineers, on the grou^id that tne

The Director reported in the laatter of recognition of 25 years service 
by members of the staff, that as requested lie had inquired concerning the 
possibility of graiiting an additional m.onth's vacation to those laeiiibers of the 
staff who had been in tlie sei'vice for a period of 23' years up to 3^ years, in 
accordance with the suggestion of the Dervice Council at its recent hearing 
before the oard; ajid that it was the opinion of the ciiief officers of tiie Li- 
brary that such an arrangement could not be cai'ried tlirough without employi.ient 
of cidditional service, particulai^ly 'ijhere schedules are maintained by a very 
small staff. The Director stated -Uiat the sUi^^estion had oeen offered tiiat 
recognition be given instead througli -olie granting of an additional vanter 
vacation of perhaps one or two weeks, and thus serve the U^o-fold purxjose 
of recognition of service and probable reduction in the number of leaves of 
absence necessary because of illness, since a winter vacation rest during the 
most vjearing season of the year would doubtless lessen the illness of the 
older group in service. The Doard discussed tiie possibility of recognition 
of service by such a plan and requested the Jirector to laaive a furtiier 
investigation. The Director stated that in the Lieantime he would report in- 
formally to the oervice Jouncil tliat since tliere had been no meeting on 
February I6 because of the budget nearing the docket for the Larch 1st 
meeting had been so large that there x^as not an opx)ortunity for the ^oard 
to give adequate consideration to the suggestions of tiie Dervice Douncil at 
its recent appearance before the Doard. 

The Director presented a letter from the Faneuil liuprovement 
Association, under date of February 9, 19U0, x:)ro testing against the use of 
the Dbdldren's Room at the Faneuil Dranch Library as a voting place. The 
Director stated that he had also received a letter from the Board of Dlection 
Gornrissioners requesting quarters for voting purposes in tlie presidential 
primary in four branch libraries. In ti/o cases, the Director stated, such 
use does not interfere vdth library activities since the baseiiients would oe 
used for the purx^ose, but in the case of the F^uieuil and City Point Dranch 
Libraries it w^ould mean the closing the reading quarters to the public for a 
nattei* of a^'proxiiaately three days. The iJirector \ia.s requested to inquire 
of the Doard of Dlection Gomiidssioners whether other quarters might not be 
found in tlie municipal building in lihicli tiie City Point Branch Library is 
housed, and wiiether other quarters in the vicirdty of Faneuil Drajich Library 
rd-ght not be found, pointing out to the Doard x-he inconvenience to tlie public 
caused by the closing of reading quarters in the aforesaid branch libraries. 

The Director reported further in the matter changini^ from a rental 
oasis to a rental -purchase basis for the typewriters used on the Liorary's 
V/,r.A. projects, that he had received a letter, under date of February 16, 
19 UO, from the _)Udget Comndssioner stating tliat he would be glad to make 
recomiaendation to the City Council of a supplementary appropriation for the 
Library's H account to care for tlie rental -purchase of typewriters on the 
Library's I/. P. A. projects, with ohe understanding tiiat, should the projects 
be discontinued, those typewriters not needed by tlie Library be nade avail- 
able to other city departments. 

The Director reported that there had been received from the ;:>uper- 
intendent of Public Buildings a request that provision be made by transfer 
from the H account of the budget of tiie Library Department to tiie H account 
of the budget of the Public Buildings Dei:)artment for the 11. P. A. sponsor's 
contribution for the i^ork of renovation of tiie V.'est Dnd Branch Library. The 
Director stated that tiie renovation of the west 2nd Branch Library building

but that as it was a branch librc^y buildinr it vrauld seem to be a proper charc^e 
against the Library's bud-et rather than that of the Public Buildincs Department, 
and that he woul(.l therefore request the Budget Goiniriissioner to maice provision in

The Director presented a letter froii Hr. G. H. EdgeLl, Director of the 
Museum of i^Une Arts and former Jean of the i:^chool of Architecture at ilaryai'd 
University, in uhich he affirx.ied his entire confidence in any recoiiiiaendation 
that Mr. Uilliam I^aerson mi^ht mal:e in ttie matter of a choice of a consulting 
architect to succeed iir. i:.dvjards J, uale, as presented oy the Director to tlie 
Board at its meeting of i''ebruary 2, l^^UO. The Jircctor stated that he uould 
next tall: vrith lir. Gale concerning Mr. iimerson's rccoriiendation and also v/ould 
himself pay a visit to the offices of the firra recor.u.iended oy lir. ^aerson. 

The Director reported that recently the Corporation Counsel had ruled 
that the Library Department was not exempt fron the regulation tliat city depart- 
ments must purchase supplies tlirough the Dity of Boston Supply Department, that 
as a consequence of tnis opinion the librar^^ officials had conferred vath 
Mr, Jolin A. Breen, head of the Dupply Department, concerning the procedure to 
be folloired, and tliat it had been agreed that the present practice in purcnasing 
supplies for the Library'- was to be continued, except that the Library's orders 
are' to be sent tiirough tlie Supply Department, the Supply uepartiiient to abide 
by the Library' s indication of vendors and prices except wiien it can better 
the prices secured by the Library. The Director stated that the Library pre- 
viously had sent its orders directly to the vendors, after approval 'oy the City 
Auditor. 

The Director re--orted in the natter of certain minor changes wliich 
need to be made in the heating pipes of tlie Central Library building, in order 
to obtain economy in heating costs, stating that the Boston Ddison Company and 
the Library had reached an agreement vjhereby the Libraiy would meet the labor 
expense of the aforesaid changes and the Edison Company would furnish tiie 
materials. 

The Director reported that the President and he had attended on 
Februar^^ 16 the hearing on the budget of the Library Depai'tment for l^UO held by 
the Appropriations Committee of the City Council. He stated that the inquiries 
by members of the Comi.dttee had oeen directed for the most part at the increase 
in the Personal Service account (A) during recent years. 

The Director brought to the attention of the Board the recoiraiendation 
of tlie Exaiiiining Committee of 1939 that the general Kirstein Branch Library 
I'dght oe discontinued in order that the liusiness Braich might be given the use 
of the entire Kirstein Memorial Librt>ry ^uildivig. Tiie _)oard gave consideration 
to the needs of the Business Branch for space in -wtiich to expand, as again^^t 
the convenience to Boston citizens in the business district in having at hand 
a general lending branch libriiry. It was agreed that the general branch librar;;- 
should be discontinued, provided that such action would not be too much in 
disaccord lath the original intent of the donor of the building. 

The Director stated that, as suggested at the previous meeting, he had 
conferred mth M. R. A. Lasley, of R. A. Lasle:', Inc., iiiiigineers, of Dew York 
City, in the matter of the j^roposed survey of the Lj.brary, and that Mr, Lasley 
had expressed an interest in undertaliing such a sui^vey, particularly from the

point of view of evaluating the service of a puolic librar^r to its comiaunity. 
The Director stated that in liis interview he had pointed out that the question 
in this instance was not necessarily the need for greater funds for the Li- 
brary's support, but rather the detennination of whether or not the cost of 
operating the Librar^/ as it is being done at present is perhaps greater than 
the City^of Boston can be exoeci-ed to support alone; ttiat in connection vath 
its cost of operation he had explained that tliis Library perfomed a dual 
role in that it functioned both as a circulation library and a library for 
research; and that also there would shortly be coming available a building 
fund TJith vriiich either to erdarge the present or ouild a new central liorary, 
an undertalcing wiiich would raise at once the question of increasinc, annual 
costs. The Director subirdtted for the consideration of the i^oard a pre- 
liminary outline of the scope of such a survey as prepared by Ij^, Lasley, 
the survey, if carried througli, to be i^iade at a cost of v>2ij,000. 

It i/as the senne of the iioard that as the ne:'rb step in tlie matter 
the Director should tallc vfith the President of the Carnegie Corporation 
of Dew ^'^ork to ascertain whether it irould be interested in aiding in such 
a survey. The Director stated that before entering into any conversations 
Td-th the Carnegie Cori^oration he vjould submit to the Board an outline of the 
Librarj^'s plan'concerning scope and purpose of Xhe proposed survey. 

The Director broujit to the attention of the Board the need for the 
am-^ual countinr of the securities belonging to the Library and in "ohe present 
custody of the^.Jity Treasurer. He vjas requested to proceed mth arrangements 
for checking the aforesaid securities in the same manner as had been done the

effect since 1923) should not be discontinued at the present moment, there 
should be no extension of the bonus system either tlirou^^h additional remunera- 
tion or additional vacation at tnis time, particularly in view of iliG dii'ficult 
financial situation of the Gity.

The Presideno uas therefore requested to noi-ify oiie Service Council ohat 
the ioard does not feel able to talze action in the manner desired by ohe ocrvicG 
Council, inasmuch as it has been found Uiat such action caiinot ^e carried tiirou^jh 
in all parts of x-he Librai-y iribhout additional corjt. 

The Director reported in the matter of a choice of a consultiutj aa^cuitect 
in succession to I^dvjards J. bale ohat since the precedinj^ meotint, he had called 
at the office of Lessrs. iimes and Child, Uie fini recomiiended oy ih:. Jilliam 
I-iierson, and had talked irlth lir. inies. He stated that as a result of ulds talk 
he irould like an opportunity to confer further in the matter vrltn hr. ^i^ierson, 
uhicii he uould do as soon as iir. i::nersoii should return irom iiis present absence 
iron the city. It uas arreed that action in the matter uf the choisc of a con- 
Eultin{^ architect should'be deferred pendin^j the .uirector's fui'ther consultation 
i^i-th Kr. Kmerson. 

The Director orought to the attention of the :3oai^d a letter froi.i Hr. Hall 
indicatinr that in a recent conversation \7itn ur. and Urs. Albert H. Wiot^in he 
had found" them very impatient with the continuiiii^ delay in the Library's bein^, 
able to install the first part of Mr. jigy-n' s collection of prints, as proposed 
by liim some time ago. The Director pointed out that the delay had occurred 
because of the ir.ipossibility of finding in the present crowded Central Library 
buildin^ the necessary space for housin^j tlie collection, mthout first re-allo- 
cating present departmental space assi^i^ients, such as moving entirely the 
Music Jepartment in order to expcmd the ..are liook Department into that space and 
thus malce possible the provision of the space in the .iai^e book Departiient area 
which had been approved by ur, and Krs. \;it;rin. To locate the Kusic Department 
elsewhere would probably require a sequence of moves of other departmental units 
also, all of Wiiich would be liii^hly desirable for reasons quite in addition to that 
of finding space for Hr. Wir^gin's collection, out should be unuertaizen only after 
careful architectural study had indicated that such moves wouln actually be 
advisable and possible, othend.se false i.ioves lidght be laade which vjould ^vrove to 
be unwise and costly. He indicated that exploratory'- architectural studies of 
this large problem had already been made by iir. ucd.e before he had found it 
necessai'y last Deceriber for reasons of nealth to ^ve up iiis activity as con- 
sulting arciiitect for the Liorary, tnat the furtlier prosecution of tiiese archi- 
tectural studies avxaiued the a>pointment of llr. dale's successor or successors, 
as set forth above. The jjirector indicated also that delay had occurred over a 
very long period because of the difficulty in obtaining action in tiie matter of 
changing'^over to the service of the Boston Ddison Company, that it would oe only 
in the no:<t week, or so that the Public Duildin^s Departraent would iiave finally 
removed the last of tiie old generating plant in the baseinent, and tliat the base- 
ment space would only then beconie finally available as an area into wldch to liove 
from other parts of the crowded buildin^ and thus ^ain space tnere for the re- 
allocation of departments. He indicated cJLso that even under the best conditions 
there would follow delay ai'ter the completion of the arcidtectural stuciies and 

a \..,.,^i., project and approval 



U 



plans, inavsmuch as the wor!^ would have to be done as 
would first have to be obtained from the ".orks ?ro;,ress

In view of this unavoidable delay, both in the past and in the^ 
ijmuediate present, it was agreed tliat there siiould oe sent to Kr. Wi^gln 
by the President a statement of ttie situation, uith full indication of the 
continuing desire of the Library to provide a/rlequate space ajid housing 
for hr. l.iggin's collection, offering regret for the unavoidaole delay 
which has occurred, and indicating that every effort is being made and 
will be made to effect as proiiTDtly as possible the necessary chantes in 
physical space to perrait malcing available the space for housing the Uiggin 
Collection. 

Tlie • director presented for the consideration of tlie Doard a letter 
under date of iiarch 21, 19hO, from the City Treasui-er bringing to Uie^ 
attention of the Trustees the dissolution of the r'isk iluober Corporation, 
authorised by its stockholders on Larch 12, l^^IiO, and the consequent pro- 
posed liquidatiji;; distribution of the assets of the aforesaid Corporation, 
and requesting of the Trustees authorization for the sui-render of tlie stock 
certificates of the Fisk Rubber Goi-poration belonging to the Denton book 
Fund and the Denton Building Fund. The Director was requested to notify 
the City Treasurer that the .3oard has authorized Ms acting in its behalf ^^ 
in the m.ntter of the surrender of the i^isk :tubber Corporation stock certifi- 
cates held by liira in the name of the Trustees. 

The Director presented a request, under date of liai^ch ly, 19^0, 
through the Corporation Counsel of the City of Boston, by iiaurice Palais, 
Attorney, for the pa^^ient of a settlement of .,-1000 from the Library's share 
of the residuary estate of the late Samuel 5igili:ian to a brother, two sisters, 
and a nepliew of Lr. Digilman. The iJirector reported that since the preceding 
meeting he had conferred in the matter of a settlement of the aforesaid 
relatives' claims mtli the Corporation Goimsel, who had informed him that 
the Probate Court had stated that it would aj^prove as a court record a 
deduction for a settlerient pa^Tnent only as an administrative exj)ense, not 
as a settlement expense. The Director stated that the Cor... oration Counsel 
had informed hiia that, unless the Trustees desired to take definite action 
in the matter, nouiing need be done by the Doard, since the v/ill has been 
allowed. No action was talcen. 

The jirector presented a letter under date of April ^'th from the 
Corporation Counsel of the City of Boston concerning the proposed final 
settlement of tlie claims of the Trustees against iirthur i'. Clarke, Surviving 
Trustee under the ;d.ll of Josiaii a. Denton, in wiiich the Corporation Counsel 
set forth that a portion of the amount ( ax^proximately v30,D00) ueing offered 
toward meeting Dr. Clarke's liabilities would not be lil^ely to be made avail- 
able by Mr. Clarke's son unless ttie settlement should be a final one, and that 
unless the Trustees were willing to agree to such a final settlement they 
stood the possibility of losing the advantage of a proportionate shai^e in 
the aforesaid offered sum as against a chance in sliaring in assets that might 
possibly turn up at some time in the future. 

iUrter consideration of the alternatives as set forth by the 
Corporation Counsel, it v/as

i'he Ldrector stated that, provided that the recent demonstration of 
the proposed method of ii-hting the .-.oDey murals had 3eer.e(\ to the Trustees 
an adequate solution of the problem, he would proceed to have specifications 
drawn up for the installation of such lightinc, tliese speciid cations to be 
incorporated in the contemplated proposal for an extensive Ij.P.A, project 
to carry tliroueh certain renovations and other worB ;dtldn the Central Li-

It vjas a}p:'eed that, inasi.uch as the Liurary has t;i'eat interest in aiiy

^^'he Director reported that, as was indicated as probaole at an 
earlier ioeeting, there uo^fLd be mde available to the Librai'y in the^ ::e\/ 
FederrO- honslni; project in oouth .Boston quai'ter^ for housing a oranch 
library, the aforesaid quarters having been provided to confona vr^th 
Librai- sDecii'ications. The Director stated that tliis uould i.iake possible 
the ■jiviii up of the rented quarters at present occupied by the iJiarew 
Snuare 3ranch Library {the -proposed new quarters are approdiiately at 
y-ndrew Squca-e) and would thereby enable the Librory to save the cost 
of rent in the amount of .^23i?0 per annuivi. 

The ::irector reported that earlier in the day Iir. iUbert lu ^ 
VJi{j£in and his dau-hter, I Irs. Sherburne Frescott, had come to the i.i- 
brary to inspect the quarters proposed for liousin^^ lir. dL,;ln's col- 
Ipction of prints, that they had been favorably ir.ipressed vrith the 
•oossibilities of tlic present lijcidbition iiooi.i, particia?riy vdth the 
inclusion of the cillery at the rear now housin- tne Library of Gon- 
xess Deposit Catalog. The Director stated tiiat \x. Wirrin had indica^oed 
that he intended to moke a first ^ift of the entire i-'rench portion of 
Ms collection (one of the iviore valuable sections of the collection-)- 
to the Libraay as of Ja.iuary 1, l^Iil. The Director indicated that the 
ouorters to be used for housin^^ the collection v/oiad have to oe ready 
before it would probably be possible to carr^ tiirou^h the contenplated 
V/.P.A. project for certain repairs and reallocation of depai'tjaental 
space within the Librajy, that the estimate of the cost of renovatinti 
the above-nentioned quarters was in the aiiiount of ^1^,000 to vl!,'>000, 
ajid that he had asked the Library's consulting ai^cnitects to reconsider 
the problem and re-estimate the cost from the viewpoint that as much 
of the work as possible should be done by the Librai-y's worla.ien. 

The Director stated that he had made a\ '" ole to tiie i.iei.ii^ers 
of the Doard the formal proposal for le-islctiox; uo establj.sii a Hew 
England Deposit Library, it lias a^:?:-eed that there is ^eneral aijproval 
by^the Doard ot the proposal to effect lerislati n in the matter of 
a Deposit Library, finaj. action in the iiatter on the part of the 
Boston Public Library not l>ein., required until a later date.

The .director presented for the consideration of the .:oard suggested 
lay-outs for advertising cards to be used in the street cai-s for the promotion 
of a rea^iinc caiapaign on Dem.ocracy. The Director stated that space on all 
street antl subway csxz in Boston proper could be secui-ed by the Library for 
1 nominal service charge to cover installation at ^^ per card, this service 
cost amounting to s'5^0 per iionth as cor pared with a commercial rental charge^ 
of ■a23'0 per month. The Director stated that in connection witn t:ds campaign 
extensive" readin;' lists of books on Deraocracy available in the Doston Public 
Librar^'- system would be issued. The Doard authorized the director to proceed 
with the development of laans for giving publicity to works on Jeiaocracy m 
the maimer indicated by him. 

The Director rei^orted tliat he was planning to transfer the Open 
Shelf i)epartment in the Central Librar^r iro!.! the iteference x.i\asion to tlie 
Circulation Division, so as to integrate its activity with that of the 
Division of the Library-' responsible for the popular circulation and 
reference work, with a view to broadening tlie scope of the usefulness of 
the O^jen Shelf iJepartjiient.. 

The Board again considered tlie matter of the appointment of a 
successor to ^dith Guerrjer, gupei-visor of branch Libraries, \iiio is to 
retire September 30, and a successor to John ii. .Leardon, Chief of the 
Open Shelf Depai-tment, who is to retire June 30. The Comi.dttee, appointed 
at the last meeting to talk mtli those individuals v/ho ai-e potential can- 
didates for the above-mentioned positions and who appear to have tiie more 
promising qualifications, reported concerning the several candidates with 
whom they had talked. Following further discussion of the exi3ericnce, 
education, and personality of the several candidates, on motion duly made 
and seconded it was 

VOTKD: that .ida .., auidelman be appointed supervisor in the 

Circulation Division, at a salary of v3300 per annum,

seconded it was 

VOTED: that Annie Iieis be i^pointed branch Liorarian, Lower 
liills Branch Library, at a salai-y of ^2000 per annum, 
as of July 1, I9U0. 

The Director stated that the no-hiring, no-filling-vacancies 
policy had oeen adhered to in tlie Liorary since January 1st, that coveras^e 
in certain departments within the Library was becoming increasingly difficult, 
and that, therefore, it was advisable that there exist some provision for 
meeting any personnel situations that may ari^e durin^, the smmer recess of 
the Doai^d. It ims agreed that three members of tlie Doard should constitute 
a committee to consider and act upon j.roblems that ma^^ arise during the 
siuiuier from the application of the no-liirJ-ng, no-filling-vacancies policy in 
the Library.

The Director reported tliat subsequent to the last meetiiifj he had 
received, under date of December 30, 19i;0, from the Library's consulting 
enjdneers, J. li, \;orcester .': Co., Inc., a report on the condition following 
the recent eai'thqualces of the cracks in tlie exterioi- walls and v/alls of the 
court of the Central Library buildin^j, that exai'dnation at the coui'ty.ard 
level and portico roof level had revealed no iioticeable change in Vae old 
craclis previously recorded and no new cracks on the outside walls, but 
that in tlie com-tyard, while there "was no appreciable cha;i^e in the old 
crac1:s, three ne\: fine hair cracks ';/ere found, runidnj vertically throu^jli 
the narrow coui^.^e of r;ranite aroiuid the coui-t wall about 30" above side- 
wallc level, located as follows: north xiall about 21' from nortiiwest cor- 
ner of courtyard, west uall about 26 » from southTxest corner, and west wall 
about 16' froiii southwest corner. 



The idrcctor seated that the report called attention to the settle- 
ment in excess of -^" w.iich had occui^red in the north^jest corner of the coui*t 
yard and of the outside walls at tuis corner, a settlement more tlian uvrice 
tliat of the rest of tne budlJin[;. The report recomjuended the rechecidng 
of the measureiiients of i-he bulges in the west 'jail of tlie coui'tyard aiid of 
that portion of the main building ad^acciit to j^oston liidversity property, 
and che exaindnation of the condition of the piles under tiie building Uirougli 
excavation of several test pits in the cellar. 



The Director stated that he had authorized J. xi. Worcester u Jo. to 
precede in accordance ;dtlx its recomiiendations, and that on January 7th a 
report had been subid\.ted relative to i-he checking of the measureiuents of 
ohe bul^e in the west wall of tlic courtyard 
evidence of lateral movement of 
>rith previous mcasuremenos taJien in 1932, 1933', 19 3o, and I937 alon, 



statin. 



i_, that no appreciable 
wall \/as found, furtlieri.iore that a checking 

" " "ohe face 



iL 



of the exterior irost iradl of the main building indicated tuat no appreciable 
lateral motion hax) taJcen :;lace in tlie face of this v;all during tiie last tin-ee 
years. The Idrector stated that in ios I'oport, in vieij of ohe fact that the 
settle. .lent of the west \jq11 was t;dce that of the rest of tlie buildiiig, 
J. ;.:. orcester '. Jo. had recommended tlic excavation of a test pit as near 
the northwest corner of the building as possiole, in order to exajidne tlie 
condition of the piles supporting that portion of die building, ihe Director 
stated that he had autliorized tlie en; dneers to proceed to such excavation and 
that on January 17th they had rendered a report as follows: ohat in the two 
pits excavated in the cellar under the adjacent old laacldne shop the ^dles 
were lound to have no sign of rot and with a water level very nccir their tops, 
and that : . die third pit (in the northvjest corner of the buildin^) the piles 
uncovered wci'e idthout sign of rot and idt/i tne water level 11" above dieir 
tops. The rejjort stated that as a result 01 these excavations it was obvious 
that the settlement of the e:rberior of the westerly vjall was not caused oy 
deterioration of pile tops, uut probably was caused by the ^eneral subsidence 
of the suusoil of the district, somewhat accolerateo: ..^^ ohe recent earthquai:es, 
anci triat tiie greater part of oIig cLforesaid settlement ;^as caused oy the vaidance 
of consistency and thiclaiess of the la^^ers of clay wliich support the piles. 
The report set forth the opinion that the settlement of ohe C'jiitral Liorar^^ 
buidding and other structures in tiie vicinity would continue at a .gradually 
decreasing rate over a lon^ period, a condition normal to structures supported 
on cla,y subsoil.

as a result of the policy followed by the Library Departuient since January 1, 
191^0 of not filling any vacancies there exist at the present time numerous 
vacancies on the staff of the Building Department, and that, therefore, the 
services of Ilr. Boggan could not well be dispensed with. The Director was re- 
quested to T^ite the Budget Cor.ii;iissioncr that the Library Department finds 
itself unable to accede to the request for the transfer of Iir. Boggan unless

ment, is responsible for the administration of the Open Shelf Department,

The Director stated that, inasmuch as provision had been made in the 
Libreiry's appropriation for 19U1 for the granting of increases in pay to 
members of the staff, and inasmuch as instructions were at hand from the City 
Auditor for the preparation of the necessary payrolls for covering these 
increases in pay, schedules of the increases liiich are nov; due had been pre- 
pared for consideration as follows: Schedule A - Seep Rate Increases in Payj 
19i^l - including all individuals who entered the library service prior to 
January 1, 1938 and 1^0 have not reached the maxima of their positions; 
Schedule B - Promotional Increase s^ 19liO - including (1) individuals in the 
3J.br ary service prior to January 1, 1938 who in 1939 had passed certain 
qualifjdng and promotional examinations, and (2) individuals irfio entered the 
library service subsequent to January 1, 1938 "sho in 1939 had passed qualify- 
ing and promotional exariinations; and Schedule C - Promotional Increases, 19^41 
- including (1) individuals in the library service prior to January 1, 1938 
who in I9I1.O had passed certain qualifying and pronotional examinations, and 
(2) individuals -tAio entered the library service subsequent to January 1, 1938 
who in 19iiO had passed qualifying and promotional examinations* 

After discussion of the problem it was agreed that action should be 
deferred until tlie next meeting, so that there would be afforded an opportunity 
to consider to i-jhat e:cbent it was advisable to proceed in the granting of these 
promotional increases, particularly in the cases of certain individuals who by 
reason of passing promotional examinations were eligible for increases in pay 
disproportionately large in relation to existing salaries "in certain instances. 
The ' director presented for consideration a list of individuals of the rank of 
Department Head or Branch Librarian who, although entitled eventually to maxima 
wliich are higher, receive at present less than the $2350. which is the maximum 
rate of pay for Assistants, several of x^iom are actually being paid that at the 
present time. The iJirector also presented for consideration the cases of two 
Apprentices in the Binding Department, who by reason of experience are eligible 
for promotion \n.th corresponding increase in pay, and of four individuals in 
the Reference Division, who by reason of the depletion of the executive staff 
in the Reference jJivision througli resignation, retirement, death, and military 
leave, have had to be placed in important key positions without monetary recogni- 
tion of their increased responsibilities. 

It was agreed that all the aforesaid cases involving the question of 
increase in pay should receive consideration at the next regular roeeting of 
the Board.

tile roof reference had been ir.ade by the Library's engineers to tlie old- 
fashioned and liighly inefficient metliods of heat conduction vri.thin tlie Cen-

Department in the matter liad been that, if the use of the material specified 
was for the best interest of the Library, it v/as proper for tiie Library to pro- 
ceed to award the contract to the sole qualified bidder. The Director stated

was already so much use of that naiie as a designation. He stated that a f urtLicr 
suggestion had oeen made to najue tlie brancli library after the earlier name of 
the locality and call it the TJashington Village Branch Library, /vfter discussion, 
tlie name Washingto n Villa ge Branch Librai-- was proposed tentatively vdth further 
investigation to be made concerning its acceptability.. The Director stated that

The Director brought to the attention of the Board the matter of Uie 
remuneration of Idchael Jello .iusso. Apprentice in the Binding uepai'tment, 
stating that during the sumraer a representative of the Bookbinders UiL.on had 
called on hii.i to inform liim that the Librar^y was not paying to Kr Dello itusso 
the full wage due to him for his length of service as an i.pprentice and re- 
commended that the Trustees taice action lo do so. Ihe Director stated that 
when consideration was being given last spring to the step rate and grade 
increases for mem^oers of tiie staff a general policy was adopted that no one 
individual should receive an increases greater than vU.OO per week, or i,)200 
per annum, and that in conformance \dth tiiis policy Mr Dello Ausso as i^U. 
as I Irs Fiargarct Bnwright Good, another Apprentice in the Binding Department, 
received increases of only i^U.bO per week. The Director pointed out tiiat 
there were also bibliothecal workers who, lia.ving ],iet promotional requirements, 
were eli^-ible for increases in excess of vU.OO per week, but who had not re- 
ceived them. He recommended that nofning oe done in tlie present instance until 
there should become available tlie money for step rate and grade increases m 
19lj2, such step rate and gxade increases to be retroactive to Jajiuary 1st 
in line idth the nolicy of the trustees as established in 19ia. It was ohere- 
fore agreed that further conL^i^deration of the matter go over to January 1, 19U2. 

The Director presented a communication, under date of August 13, from 
the local Bookbinders Union ilo. I6 requesting tiiat the Trustees establish a 
liO hour, $ dav week, lionday tiirough Friday, irithout change in weekly rate of 
pay, thereby increasing the hourly rate of pay for .bookbinders, and further- 
more that the Trustees consider a "closed shop" policy. The Director stated 
that he had consulted vdtii the Budget Goradssioner as to what v/as being done 
in other Gity .xspartments where mechanical workers are er;Tj)loycd, and that the 
Budget Commissioner had reported tliat tiie institution of the "closed shop" for 
Gity Departments is in violation of Federal and state constitutions, further- 
more that the hh hour \jeek is the generally accepted worid.ng week for mecnanical 
workers througliout city departments, with the exception of the City Printing 
Department, and that he believed that it was not consistent with good practice 
to m.ake a ciiange in the length of the working week for one particular group. 

The iJirector recommended tliat notiiing be done in the matter of the 
establisliment of a Uo hour week until such tiiie as the Gity of Boston is able 
to inaugurate a UO hour weel: for all laechanical workers in its eiriploy. The 
Board requested liim so to notify the local Bookbinders Union. 

The Director reported that recently he had read in the press that 
the women cleaners at Gity Ball were to be paid at the rate of ;p20 per week, 
an increase of s>2.00 per week over the previous prevailing rate, that he had 
conferred in the matter mth the Budget Commissioner, who had confirmed tlie 
report, stating that the increase was general throughout City Departments, 
with the exception of the Gity Hospital for wliich the rate of pay is on 
a different basis, and tliat there seemed no reason why the Library Trustees 
should not also talce action to increase tiie rate of pay of the Library 
Gleaners, if they thought it wise to do so. The Director recoiT;i,iended that 
such action be taken. It was therefore 



128 



129 



VOTED: that the rate of pay of Glcanorc be increased from vlo.OO 
to 4i20.00 per week, effective as of October 27> 19hl»

The Director stated that the alteration work on the forriier Exliibition 
Room and Gallery on the third floor of the Gcntral Libraiy to prepare the 
quarters for the Vdggin Gollection had been coL^^leted, and recommended 
acceptance of the contractor's work by the Board. It was therefore

Goiipany in tiie i:ial:ing of alteraticjns of certain rooms on

to be possible to obtain enlarged quarters for the carrying on of its 
activities in the hall and adjoining exliibit space in the new Ue\J England 
Mutual Insurance Company building at Boylston and Glarendon Streets and wished, 
therefore, to release the reservation for the use of the Gentral Library 
Lecture Hall. The Board discussed tlie matter in its relation of tlie Library's 
participation in such an activity. Tne Director was requested to convey to 
Mr Fuller tiie Library's desire to continue as a sponsoring member of the 
Gomidttee particularly idth a view to tiie assembling of suitable exiiibits in

Parker hill Branch Library in which there had been found evidence of the 
laying of a fire in a filing case. He stated that tids ms a case sir.dlar 
to that whicli resulted in an extensive fire at Brighton last spring, tiiat at 
Parker hill the Police believe tliey liave discovered the culprit, a 12 year 
old boy, but tiiat at Brigliton the Police appear to iiave made no progress

In connection TTith the change in name of tlie branch library the Director 
T^resented for the consideration of the Board a letter under date of October 17, 
frori City Councillor Thorias i.. Linehan requestinc that the Vruotees reconsider 
their decision to niove the /uidrew Square i^ranch Library, stating his belief oiiat 
the rejioval fron the present location would not so well serve the intcrects of 
the district, and requestin- that before such re^io^-al the TruLitees ^rant a 
hcarjnc, so that a representative i:To\xp from tiie .aidrew Square section niisht 
have an opportunity to present its arruinents as to why the renoval should not 
talcc place, ilfter consideration of the request the .director was requested to 
inform Councillor Linehan that the Trustees will be pleased to hear such a jroup 
at the next meeting of the Board, naricly, rViday, hovenber 7, 19hl, at h:lb p.m. 

The Director reported concerning the progress of the ilew ijnjland Deposit 
Liorary that arranseiients have been coiupleted for the building of the first ujiit 
of the' project, to be located on the Boston side of the Harvard University 
property to the rear of the harvard Business School, that the plans nave been 
drawn in such a maimer as to providr for tlie eventual erection of tv/elve units 
for book storage, and that the Hew Knjjland Deposit Library Corporation has pro- 
ceeded on the assumption that the Boston Puuxic Library is pla.inin-j to take a 
membership at a cost of ...2^00 per year, a coriiiiitment wiiich runs only froLi year 
to year. He stated that a formal agreeinent to this effect would be submitted 
to the Board at a later date. 

The director presented an order of the City Council, under date of 
Septenoer 22, 19Ul, requesting that there be reopened the Tyler Street Branch 
Librsry and the Roxbury Crossing Branch Library. ^*ter consideration ^i the 
request the Director was requested to reply on belialf of the Board tiiat the 
conditions which brought about the closing of the aforesaid branch libraries 
still apply inasiTiuch as there has been no chanj^e in the Library's cconorlc 
situation. 

The Director presented to the Board a petition to the Trustees sponsored 
by hr Charles i'aun, llo Hudson Street, and Ilr Joseph x'\ X. Doherty, 9 Hancock 
Street, fon-Jarded by tiie Ilayor's Office, requesting the reopening of the Tyler 
Street Branch Liorary. The Director was requested to reply to i-ue petition that 
the Trustees regret that it does not seem possible to reopen the Tyler Street 
Branch Library inasmuch as there has been no change in the conditions wnich 
brought about its closing. 

The Director reported in the matter of the roofing situation at ihe 
Central Library that to date there had been no provision for either repair or 
reconstruction of the roof in 19Ul, that, moreover, there was an outstaiiding 
bill for approximately :^1900 for emergency repair work done earlier in Uie :y'ear 
said for which there is no provision in i.he Library's appropriation. The ;jirector 
stated that the liayor, in submitting to the City Council his recommendation in 
the matter of the roof, had chosen of the four alternatives set forth in the 
Trustees' communication to liim that of current repairs only at an estimated 
cost of v20,000. Thereafter it T^as found that such a sun for repairs would 
have to come from the Contingent rund, in wiiich there remained a Dalance of 
only $7,000, inasmuch as a loan order could not be passed after the tax 
rate for the year had oeen set. The Director presented the suggestion that 
in the late fall the Trustees tall: iJith the mayor to ascertain the possibility 
of talcing care of the problem of the roof, quite aside from the regular budget 
and in advance of the subirdssion of the regular budget to tlie City Council, by 
means of a loan order, in order that the matter might be considered on its own 
merits rather tiisn as a rider to the annual budget.

reason for holding open house on Christmas Dve as i-iiere was at jest Dnd. 
In viexj of tiie inability to meet the expense of open house at otiier branch 
libraries as T7ell as at -'est ^nd, and in view of tiie general condition of

In connection ;ri.th possible increases in pay to be chanted, the 
Director brought to the attention of the Board the rates ox reLiuneration for 
Sunday uork for taose members of the regular stai'f who work also on oundays, 
statinr- that in the bibliothecal departments present reuiuneration was at a 
fixed rate for the position filled and in the majority of cases at an hourly 
rate less than that received by individuals for the saiue or sii:alar work on week 
da^s It was the Director's recommendation that Sunday waces snould be set 
at' the same rate as the week day rate, with the provision tliat no reduction 
from the present rate of remuneration for extra work on Sundays results lor

o^ the merchants .national Dank had upon its suosequent advice been retained 
because disposal at the present tijie would entail a too great fmaiicial loss. 
He stated that there had thus been retained for the jjm.icdiate present- the 
folloirln, stocks, pending further study as to the most advantageous tuie for 
their sale:

Kirstein, as a Trustee of the Librory froii 1919 to V9k2. The panute as 
itted was adopted and ordered spread upon the records of tiie doiiporation 
as follows: 

Tirou •hout tliis coaiunity and far beyond its oorders, the 
death of iSuis L. Kirstein is strongly and deeply felt but nowhere 
is the sense of lais loss uore real or raore abiding than m this 
Library, his terin of service as a Trustee bej^an on the first ^ of 
Uay, 1919 and continued for twenty-tln^ee yoaTvS across the admin- 
istrations of five liayors of this City. It would be inadequate 
to say that his work as a Trustee was assiduous, in season and 
out tliis Liorary was in the forefra ut of his idnd. To hiia it 
represented the cause nearest of all causes to ids ai'fections — 
the right of every citizen, rci^ardless of race, creed or color, 
to share in the satisfactions of oho coLiiiion life. In iiis rdnd 
the Public Liorary was the university of all tlie people. i:Js- 
pecially was his concern nanifest for the less fortunate aiaon,^ 
ids fellow citizens. The under-paid and the under-privlle^eo 
habituall-/ found in hiin their ready spokesiaan aiid this ioai^d can 
bear wdtncss to Ids unwaverinr interest in the advancenont of 
labor toward a laore perfect p.rtnersldp in the social wcU-beinij. 

Faith and works were, in Mr Kir stein, part and parcel of a 
siracl idea, ho was a practical nan and his tlioUi^nt took prac- 
tical lorra. The hirstein .iciaorial Liorary, housin^ tne dusiness 
Branch and built in rei.ie:^ibraiice of his father, is ids own fitting 
iieraorial, not only in its beauty and its order, out in the coia- 
plctencsG i\- its adaptation to the diverse interests of tlie con- 
raunity. It was cheracteristic that, before the ^^ift was nade, 
the plrai for its diverse usefulness was worked out by Idr.i in 

consuimiatc detail. 

The lYustees likewise wdch to record tiieir continuinr

The follovjing bills, having been approved by the Director and a Trustee, 
were alloued and ordered paid: chargeable to the Nay 31st Draft, to the General

r, , ^ T . 1 jy j-l__ J 3^ A^^JT on 



a certifi- 

been appointed as Trustee of the Library for the term cndinc April 30, 19U9 and 
had been duly sworn as such officer. 



it was 



On recoiTUiiendation of tlie Director, and on motion duly made and seconded. 



VOTED: that there be granted to George V:. Gallagher, Forwarder, 
leave of absence -without loss of pay for 2 weeks dating 
from h May 19i;U, because of illness certified by iiis 
physician, and Mr Gallagher having been in the service of 
the Librar:>^ for Uo years. 

Tlie Director brought to the attention of the Board the interest of a 
member of the staff, a Children's Librarian, in library work vdtli negroes, stating 
that she had indicated her intention of resigning in order to secure furtlier 
special training in the field at Columbia University as i-.^ell as to do in New 
York actual practice work vri.th the negro for a period of six montiis. It \«is 
the Director's feeling that, inasmuch as the Library has a definite shortage of 
Children's Librarians as vreH as a sizable negro population vjliich it serves, it 
would be distinctly to the Library's advantage to have return to its service the 
aforesaid assistant at the conclusion of her training, and he therefore sug- 
gested that in this instance a leave of absence without pay be [panted to ttie 
individual. The Board approved his suggestion. 

The Director reported that I^llliam L. Kondrick, an Extra Assistant at the 
City Point Branch Library, injured his finger in the perfoniiance of liis duties 
at the Library, necessitating six visits to his doctor. Inasnuch as the injury 
occurred in line of duty, the Director was authorized to rialce pa^aicnt to 
Dr. Charles A. Robinson, 270 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, of the amount of ipl2,00, 
covering six office visits of Uilliam L. Kendidck. 

The Director reported in the case of V/illiam E. Clegg, that since the 
preceding meeting the case had come before Judge xi^lijah Adlow on '.Wednesday, 
May 5 in the Boston Municipal Court, that Judge Adlow had informed the several 
interested parties to come to a decision as to v^iat they ;-dshod to do in the 
matter of the division of Mr Clegg' s available assets, and to come before the 
Court again on Friday, May ^. The Director stated that the case had been heard 
again this morning, that Judge Adlow had thereupon stated that there should be 
turned over to the Benefit Association Mr Clegg' s pajments into liis retirement 
fund as well as his equity in his house, but that, upon indication from the 
attorneys for the Greater Boston v;ar Fund and the Blue Gross that their clients 
should share in the restitution, although they had not been parties to the com- 
plaints filed against Mr Clegg, the Judge had indicated the Court's displeasure 
with the lack of agreement aiaong the parties and had rescinded his decision so 
that Mr Clegg was not required by the Court to mal^c any restitution at all and 
vjas given merely a six months' suspended sentence for the larceny of 1^200 and a 
six months' suspended sentence for the larceny of vl6,000 of jcnefit Association 
funds.

The Director reported that following the hearing the attorney for 
Mr Clegg had approached the attorney for the Benefit Association with the 
sugpestion that some arrangement might be reached for a voluntary partial 
restitution on the part of Mr Clegg. Pending further report concerning the 
aforesaid suggestion no action was taken toward the discharge of Mir Clegg 
from the Library's service, inasmuch as such discharge would automatically 
release to Mr Clegg his payments into the Retirement Fund amounting to some 
$2600. 

The Director presented to the Board a communication, under date of 
April 28, 19Uh, from the Ma^^'-or's Office requesting comment and report on an 
inclosed coLinuni cation from Boston Public Library Er^loyees Local Union 
No. 731 addressed to His Honor the Mayor. The communication to His Honor 
l)eing similar in nature to the presentation made by the Union to the Trustees 
and to its releases to the press, following discussion of the procedure to 
be followed it was agreed that the Director should send to the Mayor as report 
in the matter a copy of the Board's reply, under date of March 25, l.9Uk, to the 
Union's presentation. 

In connection with the Union's demand for tlie resuiiq:)tion of the pay- 
ment of step rate increases in the Library, the President reported that he 
hoped to have a conference with His Honor the Mayor wi thing the next two 
weeks for the purpose of discussing the problem of step rate increases. 

The Director reported in the matter of the recent request of the 
group of Forest Hills citizens for the provision of Library facilities in 
that district, that further extension of the present procedure of issuing 
library books one day a week to pupils at the public school was not feasible, 
since tiiie for such activity was allowed from school work to pupils once a 
week but could not properly be increased, and since the issue of books out 
of school hours would brj.ng an increase in the cost of heating, Ughting, and 
supervising the school building. In connection vo.th the proposed provision 
of lending i^acilitdes for adults through the maintenance of a circulation 
branch, the Director reported that the Chief Librarian of the Circulation Di- 
vision had made a survey of the quarters available in the suggested area m 
the vicinity of Malii Hill Street and Hyde Park Avenue, and had found that 
there were available for the purpose two small stores side by side on liyde 
Park Avenue at a probable rental cost of v50 per month. His estimate of the 
personnel cost of such a circulation branch (without plan for reading room 
and reference service) on a limited schedule afternoons and evenings, closing 
Friday evenings, and Saturday afternoons and evenings, would be in the vicinity 
of $2000 per year. He stated that the other expenses of book stock, both shelves, 
other installations, repairs, cleanijig, and other items would bring the total 
cost to between i^6000 and $7000 for the first year. 

The Board discussed the adequacy of the suggested store quarters. 
The Director was requested to malie an examination of the proposed quarters, 
and to talk further in the matter \J±th the citizens wiio had evinced their 
interest in the establishment of a branch library, and tiien to report 
back to the Board. 

The Director presented to the Board the report of the rocamining 
Committee for 19li3-iUi as rendered to the Vice President at its final meeting 
on 1 May 19UU. The President thereupon reported that he had attended the 



320

™«pt-i nr in his capacity of Vice President in the absence of the then President, 
Mr Jota U H^l!^ indicated the feeUng of nembers of Xixe Examning CoMoxttee 
that i? w^uld b; of much value to them in their «oik to Imow to what extent 
•*v^,^\»^n possible fron year to year for the Library to carry out their recon- 
™^n^Sions ^f he brSt trthe attention of the Board the Examining CoM.dttee's 
refo™^Sak^ that th^oard have a meeting with the Goi^ttee for the purpose 
n? di^^^sSr the suggestions offered by the Kxaiidning Conidttee in its Report. 
° ini!?^ d^scu^sion it was af-reed that the Board should hold a special meeting 
To cSer thrfieport of ?^e^aminins CoMdttee, and ti.e date for such a meeting 

was set as Hay 26 at U:l5 p.in. 

The Board then gave consideration to the presentation prepared by the 
Director in comment upon the Report rendered by Zoltan Haraszti, i.eeper of iiare 
EoS under d^e of February 21, 1910;. It was agreed that the/xrector's com- 
ments afforded valuable infoi^tion concerning and reiutation of ^^W of the 
stntenSts in llr Haraszti's Report, but that further time was needed for an 
^eouarstudy o^^ the material, vdth the probability that tl.e matter should 
have consideration at a special meeting of the Boara.

member of the staff vi\o had suffered severe injuries as a result of a fall 
from a defective chair in her branch library, and \^ose health as a result 
of this accident had been so iinjiaired that her physician had indicated that 
she should have further leave of absence in \^iich to recuperate, a leave 
of absence of 11 weeks having already been granted to her. The ojirector 
stated that she was a deserving assistant with a very good record of service 
to the Library over a period of 22 years. He therefore recommended that she 
be given at this time a further leave of 8 weeks, and that he have authority

'The Director stated that because of the recent death of Salvatore 
Ilaradei in the Binding Department there exists a vacancy in the position of 
Forwarder in that Department, He recominended tliat there be appointed to fill 
the vacancy a llilitary Substitute who had served satisfactorily in tlie Binding 
Department for the past year and who is qualified under Civil Service procedure 
to fill the position. On i.iotion duly made and seconded it was 

VOTED: that Patrick J. Forrester, llilitary Substitute, having 

been certified by tlie Civil Service Commission and having 
cor.rpleted satisfactorily six months in the Library service, 
be ^pointed a Forwarder in the Permanent Service. 

The Director presented for the consideration of tlie Board the naiaes of 
those candidates who are eligible for appointment to tlie position of First 
Assistant, in wliich position there exists a vacancy in the branch libraries 
because of the promotion of llary A. Hackett to the position of Branch Librarian. 
The Director recoLimended that Frances G. Lepie, at present serving as a Second 
Assistant, be appointed. On motion dijly made and seconded, it v/as thereupon 

VOTED: that Frances G. Lepie be appointed First Assistant at a 

salary of v39*50 per vjeek, the sppointiaent to be put into 
effect at the discretion of the Director. 

The Director reported that he was now ready to recor.ir.iend the appoint- 
ment of John M. Carroll as Ctiief of the General Reference Departraent, stating 
that Ilr Carroll had been giving satisfactory service in that capacity since lie 
had been named as Assistant-in-Charge on February 9, 19hh. On motion duly made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED: that John II. Carroll be appointed Gliief of the General 
Reference Department at a salary of S2375* per annuia, 
effective 2ii May 19Uh. 

The Director also reported in the matter of the vacancy in the position 
of Chief of the Issue Department existing since the retirement of Thomas F. 
Srennan on December 31, I9I43, stating that \f±t\i the evolution of the book stack 
service as envisaged in the basic planning for the new building that will become 



325 



33 "2 4 






possible of erection with the maturity of the Benton Building Fund, the present 
Issue Department as such will disappear, to be replaced by direct book stack 
service to the several special departments, each of which will be adjacent to its 
oxm stack space. However, in the interiir., he stated, there is the problen of the 
present i'lrst Assistant in ti^ Issue Department having to assume responsibility 
for the direction of a department with some US assistants, one of the largest m 
the institution, idtliout being given recognition for tiiis activity. To ooviate 
the awia^ard situation that would ensue upon the eventual transfer to the proposed 
new library building, if the First Assistant V7ere to be named Chief of the issue 
Department, the Director recomended instead that tlie First iLSsistant be appointed 
Chief of Book Stack Service. 

After discussion of the matter, ajxl on motion duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED: that William J. Ennis be ai^pointed Chief of Book 5tack ^ 

Service at a salary of C>237S- per annum, effective 2h iiay 19aU. 

The rjirector brought to the attention of the Board the matter of the appoint- 
ment of Working Foremen to assume responsibility for the work of the Library's groups 
0^ carpenters, painters, and electricians, stating that t.iis practice had worked 
very satisfactorily in the past, but that through retirements the positions had 
"oeen vacant for some years. He stated that, if the Board were agreeable, he would 
approach Civil Service for pendssion to make such a,_)p ointments. Tne Boara agreed 
that the Director should seek per.iission from the Civil Service Contiission to 
appoint a .Jorking Foreman of Carpenters, a Working Foreman of Painters, and a 
V/orking Foreman of Electricians. 

The Director brouglit to the attention of the Board the request of Abraliam H. 
Kalish for payment of expenses of attendance at the Massachusetts State Federation 
of Labor Institute to be held at Lellesley in June, and also for payment for luncneon 
and dinner expense incurred by hjjn while attending i;Teetings of the Industrial .de- 
lations Group and the Adult Education Conference in Boston. Tlie Director stated 
that inquiry had been made of the City Auditor as to the propriety of such charges 
and that the Library liad been informed that, if the Trustees wished to authorize sucn 
expenditure, it was entirely correct to do so with the exception of the luncheon of 
the Adult Education Conference wliich l-ir Kalish had attended in his capacity as an 
individual, iifter discussion of the mtter, the Director was autnorized to pay the 
expenses of Mr Kalish' s attendance at the Ilassachusetts State Federation of Labor 
Institute and the cost of Mr Kalish' s dinner at the Industrial ilelations Group meeting. 

The Director presented for the consideration of the Board a request re- 
ceived that day from the School Department of the City of Boston for aid in re- 
binding textbooks during the summer of 19liU, a request made because of t^hat Depart- 
ment 's\nability to secure from comjnercial binders bids for doing the vfork. The 
Director ctated that to undertake this work the Library would have to engage extra 
bookbinders, if such were available, and that some arrangement would have to be 
reached vjhereby tlie cost of materials and labor vrould be paid from School Departraent 
-unds and not from Library Appropriation. The Birector stated further that tnis 
would entail a drop in tlie Library's oini binding production of aj^proximately 25/i, 
a loss which could not readily be made up. Before assenting to such an arrangement, 
in view of the potential loss to the Library's own binding production, the director 
was requested to malce furttier inquiry as to the absolute unavailability of any com- 
merical firm able to carry through the work, and to report further in the matter 
to the Board.
