This note from George London, Chairman of the Friends of the Library, dated December 2, 1976, is tipped on the first page: "The first part of this biographical sketch, by Maurice F. Tauber, was a preview of Professor Tauber's full-scale biography, Louis Round Wilson: Librarian and Administrator, published in 1967 by Columbia University Press. Tauber's sketch covered L.R. Wilson's life and career up to the mid-1950's and was presented on the occasion of Dr. Wilson's retirement as Chairman of the Friends of the University of North Carolina Library. Like Louis Round Wilson's many other retirements, however, this one did not last, and over the next twenty years he continued to be active as teacher, writer, consultant, and trusted advisor to University officials. These later years in his long and fruitful career are described in the second part of the sketch. 'The years since 1955,' by Frances Weaver, a long-time family friend." The second part is laid in to a pocket on the inside of the back cover.; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
