In Dorothy's words:
I'm a retired public librarian from San Francisco Public Library who was hired immediately after finishing an MLIS at UCBerkeley in 1986. (I had thought to be a law librarian and have always been grateful that fate and a recruiter intervened.) Public librarians have the best job in the world…people, books, research, and respect after retirement.
Along the way, with a very supportive and extensive family, I've acquired a B.A. and M.A. from San Francisco State University in Political Science and an LLB in law from Lincoln University. My research focus has been upon political theory as well as American history.
I have five children, three grandchildren, one great-grandchild with a second one in progress... not to mention a Irish/Bostonian spouse. More about them later...
Much of my family tree has been well documented, but some areas contain completely mysterious gaps. Looking forward to closing some of them.
Adventure is out there! 73 years and counting...
