Children's librarian. Christened "Annie", she later changed her first name to "Anne" to avoid confusion with a well-known children's author. She studied librarianship at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and developed the new Children's Library there. She continued her work developing children's libraries with the main New York Public Library and fourteen branches which eventually joined the system. Anne was particularly interested in developing oral storytelling within a library setting, and also made a point of creating collections of books for the immigrant children of New York in their native languages as well as English translations of their native tales. She regularly wrote reviews of children's literature with a long-time column in the New York Herald Tribune. To honor her work, she was awarded two honorary doctorates, the first Constance Linsday Skinner memorial award (1940) for "outstanding contribution to the world of books" and the Regina Medal of the Catholic Library Association (1960). More details on her life and career can be found in her entry in American National Biography and at
