• Zeidberg to Address City Club Tuesday


    David Zeidberg, Avery Director of at the Huntington Library, will deliver the keynote address at the Tuesday, April 16 meeting of the San Marino City Club at the San Marino Center.

    Zeidberg is responsible for directing the research projects undertaken by the Huntington Library. Boasting lush gardens and a first-class art collection, lying behind the facade is what some would say is its most important cultural and sociologic work: The research of its vast collections that helps scholars all over the world. Zeidberg will discuss the work that the Huntington Library is doing to bring together international scholars with the institution’s cooperative programs in the art, botanical and research divisions.

    Zeidberg graduated summa cum laude from Windham College in Putney, Vermont. He holds a Masters in Medieval & Renaissance English Language & Literature, and a Masters in Library & Information Science.

    He has served as a rare books librarian at Syracuse, curator of special collections at George Washington University and head of special collections at UCLA before assuming his duties at the Huntington in March, 1996. He has written on topics such as teaching using primary resources, library security and the future of special collections in the age of technology.

    A 5:30 p.m. reception precedes the 6:30 p.m. dinner and meeting.
