Estelle Brodman Oral History (OH052)

  • 11/22/1978

The several interviewers next respond to Dr. Brodman’s questions about the changes in the Washington University School of Medicine Library. The interview ends with Estelle Brodman’s statement on how fulfilling and exciting medical librarianship has been for her.

Dr. Brodman was interviewed in 1978 by several library staff members. The original transcript identifies the interviewers as “Mrs. Bertell and Others.” The identification of Mrs. Bertell was probably a transcription error as there is no record of a “Mrs. Bertell” on the Medical Library staff at that time. However, rosters of the staff suggest that “Mrs. Bertell” was actually Audrey K. Berteau, who served as head of public services from 1977-1979. Mrs. Berteau was the first interviewer. Where the interviewer is unknown, "INT" has been used. Interviewerd by:Audrey K. Berteau, Loretta Stucki, Barbara Halbrook, Betty Kulifay, Millard Johnson on November 22, 1978. OH052. Approximate Length: 17 leaves.
