Regina Andrews: Harlem Renaissance Librarian

To wrap up National Library Week I invite you to check out Professor Ethelene Whitmire’s blog, Regina Andrews: Harlem Renaissance Librarian.  Professor Whitmire is currently writing a biography about Regina Andrews, the first African American Supervising Librarian in the New York Public Library system.  Andrews lived a fascinating life in the early 20th Century and through the blog you’ll learn a bit about her.  Professor Whitmire’s research has taken her all over the country and she has given presentations about Andrews in the U.S. and abroad.  The blog is a chronicle of Whitmire’s journey as biographer.  I hope you’ll take a moment to read the entires.  Be sure to start at the beginning!
