John Richardson and David Kaser
The SLIS Kaser Lecture series is named in honor of David Kaser, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, who studied, wrote, and taught extensively in the areas of library history, library buildings, and printing. Professor Kaser retired in 1991 after 18 years at SLIS.
The 2009 Lecture was a success. The talk was given by SLIS alumnus John Richardson, Jr. (Ph.D. '78) on April 2nd in the Lilly Library, Indiana University, Bloomington. The photos included here are from the event.
Richardson's talk was titled"From Hand Printer to Ecological Informatician: Or, How I Discovered the Lost Ship of the Colorado Desert: - an autobiographical speculation on how the field has changed over my thirty plus year career with advice on focusing on the present, studying the past, and planning for the future..." Immediately following the lecture was a reception in the Slocum Room. The event was co-organized by Sarah Burton at SLIS, and Joel Silver at the Lilly Library.
