I am very sad to inform you that Dorothy Hill passed away this morning
after a long illness.  Dorothy had a 40+ year career in medical
librarianship at several academic medical centers where she had a major
impact on building library collections.  She received wide recognition
for her work in collection development and was awarded the first Louise
Darling Medal for Distinguished Achievement in Collection Development by
the Medical Library Association.  Her biennial "Selected Lists",
prepared in collaboration with Alfred N. Brandon, were used by libraries
throughout the World.
Mount Sinai School of Medicine had the good fortune to have Dorothy as a
faculty member for 33 years.  She was a friend to many and freely shared
her accumulated knowledge with professional colleagues, fellow faculty
members and medical and graduate students through the electives she
taught.  Her contributions will have a lasting impact.
