Excerpt from How to Plan a Library Building for Library Work

Of the author of this volume it was said by President Hill at the 1906 A. L. A. Conference, "he has given the subject of Library Architecture more thought and attention, probably, than any other member."

Mr. Soule is well known to older librarians. To introduce him to a younger generation and to architects, we would say that although he is a publisher and bookseller, and not professionally a librarian, he has had an effective training in library science. He joined the American Library Association in 1879, became at once a working member, has attended twenty Conferences, and has been elected to office, as follows:

1888-1899 - Trustee of the Brookline (Mass.) Public Library.

1890-1908 - Publishing Board, A. L. A.

1890 - Vice-president.

1893 - 1896, 1900-1905 - Member of the Council.

1894 - 1906 - Trustee Endowment Fund.

1906 - 1912 - Member of the Institute.
