Hill, Dorothy R. - passed away on September 4 after a long illness.
Noted medical librarian and co-author of the Brandon/Hill Selected Lists
of Books and Journals for the Small Medical Library; Nursing; and Allied
Health, her work influenced the development of medical library
collections worldwide. Daughter of the late Arthur T. and Ruth Hill,
Dorothy received numerous awards for her work with medical libraries and
had a long career building medical library collections at the University
of Kentucky, Johns Hopkins, and Mount Sinai School of Medicine where she
spent the last 33 years of her career. A gathering in her honor will be
held on Friday, September 12 at 11:00 am at Frank E. Campbell, 1076
Madison Avenue at 81st Street. Interment will be Saturday, September 13
in Springfield, MA.
Those attending will be invited to speak about Dorothy and the impact
her work may have had on your library, your career or you personally.
Advance notice is not required, but we hope some of you can attend and
share your memories.
