Saint Melvil

Annoying or not?

My personal favorite:

He organized librarian conferences (starting in 1876), the biggest geek meetings to take place before Star Trek Conventions (which began in 1972).

(And, hey, as one of my coworkers said, I’m not crabby all the time! hehe.)

  1. He also helped found the Adirondack Mountain Club (of which my wife and I are members)and is the reason why the club’s property is known as Adirondack Loj (not Lodge).
