Alice Bertha Kroeger

Born this day in 1864: Alice Bertha Kroeger (1864–1909), reference librarian. 

Creator (1902) of the Guide to the Study and Use of Reference Books: A Manual for Librarians, Teachers and Students, the reference librarian’s bible for more than 100 years. Librarians at the Columbia University Libraries have been updating the book on an ongoing basis since Kroeger’s death in 1909. She was also a suffragist. Yea!
