I am a librarian by profession and an amateur historian by avocation. After 29 years as a librarian at a number of different organizations, I retired as Head of Liaison & Instruction Services at the Boston University Libraries in June 2021.
Before becoming a librarian, I worked as a newspaper reporter and a public relations specialist. I have been the volunteer head of the Brookline Historical Society in Brookline, Massachusetts, since 2009. I write about Brookline history, lead walking tours and give presentations on different aspects of the town’s history. I also research and write about etymology, baseball history, and whatever odd and curious things catch my interest.
