AALL History through the Eyes of Its Presidents

Frank G. Houdek, Southern Illinois University Carbondale


On the occasion of the celebration of AALL's centennial in 2006, Professor Houdek offers a personalized history of the Association by presenting reminiscences of those who have served as its president. Collectively, these stories contribute a unique perspective on the important issues that have confronted AALL as an organization and law librarianship as a profession. They also help explain how these individuals became AALL leaders and what the experience meant to them.
