Title

John D. Haskell, Librarian, Laminated I.D. Card

Description

John D. Haskell was the first full time UMBC employee. He was responsible for starting the Library, although Haskell's initial days at the university were spent not at UMBC but at College Park where he was oriented into the policies and procedures of the University of Maryland libraries system." It was Haskell's job to have 75,000 volumes of books and periodicals available" when the campus opened in 1966. He left UMBC in 1969 to enroll in a doctoral program for American Studies from George Washington University; Haskell retired in 2006 after a long career at the Earl Gregg Swem Library of the College of William & Mary.
