Working under the guidance of Dr. Marguerite Ragnow, curator of the James Ford Bell Library, this online exhibit was created by Paul Bary, a well-travelled librarian who worked at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, and at Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York.  For the past three years Mr. Bary has volunteered in the James Ford Bell Library on special projects including several online exhibits that will be launched in 2014.
