RIVER kv;at
Finding the name of Ulys
ses' dog or how the ancient
Chinese incubated eggs or
what "the horror of Fuseli's
horse" means is simply part
of a day's work for the pub
lic service librarians at Love
Memorial Library.
Either from memory, by
painstaking research, or, oc
casionally, by mind reading,
these University librarians
manage to answer most of
the hundreds of questions
posed weekly to them.
It is a rare day, explains
Bernard Kreissman, assistant
director of libraries for hu
manities, that the research
staff is completely puzzled.
When this happens, he says,
the questions are usually ex
tremely obscure or concern
phenomena too recent to be
included in the s 0 u r c e ma
Lady Lou
A sportscaster's newly
coined word, for instance,
may not appear in any dic
tionary. But in this case,
Kreissman says, the librari
ans can usually guess quite
accurately at the meaning.
One time they were unable
to confirm an inquirer's ap
parent belief that the char
acter, Lady Lou, in "T h e
Shooting of Dan McGrew" re
ferred to a specific woman.
However, the librarians
have been able to provide
such varied information as
this: the ancient Chinese in
cubated eggs by slipping
them in the long loose sleeves
of the coolies; Ulysses' dog's
name is Argus, and that
r useu s norse means a
grotesque hoise in a night
mare depicted in one of the
painter's works.
At times unanswered quer
ies have led to interesting
endings. When it was impos
sible to find adequate ma
terial about Christian Rohlfs,
the German Expressionist,
for Manfred L. Keiler, asso-

ciate professor of art, Kreiss
man observed that the area
needed investigation. Keiler
consequently undertook the
project and later received a
grant for research in Ger
While the bulk of reference
questions comes from stu
dents and faculty members,
a large number of outside re
quests are also handled.
Certain categories of infor
mation are often sought, al
though most questions con
cern the use of the library's
resources. Theater groups,
for instance, request pictures
of interiors and costumes. Re
cently, for the University
Theatre's production of "The
Lark," a play based on the
life of Joan of Arc, Kreiss
man described the toy
Charles II played with.
uiten tne librarians are
asked for photographs of lit
erary references and expla
nations of symbols. They've
been asked, for example, "Is
there a Cooper's Hill?"; and
"Why is there a rose at the
foot of a prisoner in iail"?
Many nes the librarians
receivi; oiily a vague hint, or
even erroneous information
in the original request. This
is when mind reading helps.
They were puzzled along
time by one housewife's in
quiry about "a story about
a famous Spanish parrot"
mentioned by a club lecturer.
One of the librarians finally
telephoned the woman and
confirmed a hunch that the
lecturer had actually re
ferred to a "famous Spanish
parody, 'Don Quixote.' " An
other time, when a student
asked for "Bail Wolf, the
Greek Play," one librarian
calmly pulled out "Beowulf,"
the Anglo-Saxon epic poem.
Another category deals
with more involved questions
requiring extensive research.
These have ranged from
"Did St. Thomas Aquinas
have a definite position on
capital punishment"? to
"What have the great philoso
phers written on hate"?
To the Rescue
The librarians recently
came to the aid of Paul
Engle, the poet who spoke

at a University Convocation
in March. Mr. Engle had left
behind all of his references,
and two hours before the lec
ture appealed to the library,
Well before the convoctaion,
the librarians had found for
him all of his works from the
last 15 years.
Kreissman considers h i s
biggest problem to be telling
people who bring in beloved
100-year-old family Bibles
that they are of no value to
a book dealer.
"They look at me with ut
ter disbelief," he says, add
ing that age alone does not
determine a book's value. At
times, however, he has un
covered books of value from
the attic relics persons bring
to his office.
