  • Currier (Lura Gibbons) Papers, 1937-1983
    s library service outside of her occupational responsibilities Currier belonged to many professional associations over the years These included sections of the American Library Association as well as various state organizations such as the Mississippi Library Association The series relating to these groups contain information on the committees Currier belonged to within the associations for example the ALA Library Extension Service Committee and the Public Libraries Division and on her attendance and the speeches she gave at the conferences of these groups In addition to the correspondence the series also contain programs and name tags from the conferences and the bulletins of the associations The collected writings and speeches of Currier make up the next large series in the collection There are near forty identified speeches handwritten or typed on paper and index cards Ten folders of undated and untitled speeches have also been preserved The speech topics include economic growth in the New South and its relation to libraries the importance of librarians joining together to promote expansion of library services and the benefits of a well operated public library system Following these speeches is a sub series of speech notes In many cases it was impossible to determine to which speech the notes pertained The notes therefore are arranged simply by size from index cards to regular sized paper Series 16 is a grouping of press releases 1949 50 Most of these were issued while Currier was employed at Mt Vernon and were essential to her achievement of the John Cotton Dana Award for excellence in public relations activities Some of the topics include a Christmas wish list for the public library bookmobile service and special library exhibits The press releases are arranged in order from dated to undated material The published materials 1948 75 which follow the press releases are arranged in the same manner These works consist of articles by Currier on the subject of public librarianship and published copies of her speeches Many of these are found in library journals such as the Wilson Library Bulletin or Mississippi Library News The final series 18 on ancillary professional activities is entitled Career Related Materials It contains correspondence pertaining to positions of employment offered to Currier and employment recommendations she wrote for others There is also a folder of notes concerning a work on Essae Martha Culver Louisiana State Librarian 1925 62 and a folder of unidentified audograms five inch plastic recording discs These miscellaneous items are followed by the final series in Subgroup I a large collection of library information There are newspaper articles on Mississippi libraries as well as librarianship around the country Also included are pamphlets fliers operational manuals and short and long reports on various topics These items form a mini collection on a broad range of issues relating to librarianship They cover such topics as library development in Mississippi American standard specifications for libraries staff development and planning programming budgeting systems While they are valuable in understanding the kinds of problems Currier encountered in her work they also provide a good insight into the subject of library service during this period For a glimpse into Currier s life outside oflibrary service one must consult Subgroup II personal materials The first series contains correspondence between Currier her family and friends from 1952 to 1974 Notable are the annual Gibbons Currier Christmas letters three of which are available They provde details of family activities for the year The second series of correspondence relates to Currier s alumni status with Mississippi Southern College The third series is related to information on Mississippi 1953 83 Often the information originates from outside sources such as Washington newspapers which indicate Currier s continued interest in the state even when she was not a resident The subjects covered include Mississippi s Head Start Program the Merit Program the Council on Human Relations and local celebrity Fishbait Miller Collected materials on civil rights and race relations make up the fourth series of this subgroup The folders contain articles fliers and reports which span the years of 1952 to 1972 There is also a folder of correspondence pertaining to the problems libraries encountered in complying with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 The next series contains anecdotal material Currier collected for use in her speeches or simply out of personal interest These include items such as editorial cartoons on the Watergate affair Letters From the Pastor on subjects of morality which she clipped from church bulletins and numerous collections of pithy one liners such as a bureaucrat is a man who thinks small and has a big staff and money s not all that s needed but it is way ahead of whatever is in second place Following these items is a series of fourteen photographs Currier is featured in most of them engaged in some sort of library service such as moving books examining library materials or meeting with other library workers The final two folders of Subgroup II contain the most personal items of the collection There is a copy of the student newspaper of Mississippi Southern College the Student Printz of which Currier was the editor dated the year that she graduated 1937 There is also Currier s calling card an item of V mail she received in 1944 and a few certificates of merit which she received one of which is from a course on Defensive Driving The final items relate to Currier s mother in law whom she remained close to throughout her life This collection would be of value to someone researching library development in the period from the mid 1940s through the 1970s By reviewing the contents of the collection a good sense of the problems encountered and achievements made during this period can be gained This collection also offers excellent biographical information on a pioneer in Mississippi librarianship Lura Currier was a dynamic speaker and a prolific writer She devoted her time and efforts toward improving library service and these papers bear witness
