Title: The Art and Science of Classification: Phyllis Allen Richmond, 1921–1997
Author(s): La Barre, Kathryn A.
Subject(s): Library science --History Information science --History
Abstract: Research during the 1950s in library and information science refl ected the intense intellectual foment and fervor of the time. As a master’s student of library science at Western Reserve University (WRU) in 1952, Phyllis Allen Richmond found herself at the epicenter of some of the most exciting work being pursued in the fi eld. Her academic career crosscuts diverse areas. She was a champion of library automation, of facet analytical theory, and of the history of science. She always kept the future of classifi cation fi rmly at the center of her work. This retrospective of the pioneering accomplishments and contributions of a distinguished forty-year career will draw upon recollections, materials at the Case Western Reserve University Archive, and Richmond’s own writings.
