Letters: How to Move a Lot of Books

The picture in the Summer 2010 On Wisconsin of the recently renovated reading room of the Wisconsin Historical Society Library [Scene] took me back to the summer of 1953, when I began graduate study at the UW. I recall the library staff posted many requests around the library and on campus asking students and faculty to withdraw many books from the UW portion of the Historical Library, and then to return them to the new Memorial Library when it opened, as that would save them time and money. I did my part in that effort.
