2. COLLECTIONS
A. JAMES RUSSELL WIGGINS PAPERS
Fogler Library is pleased to announce that the papers of James Russell
Wiggins (1903-2000) are now available for public use. Wiggins, best known
as a managing editor and executive for the Washington Post (1947-1968), had
a distinguished career in journalism even before he began his tenure at the
Post, having previously worked as an editor at the New York Times (1946),
and the St. Paul Dispatch-Pioneer Press (1924-1942, 1945). Wiggins worked
as an Army intelligence officer during World War II. After retiring from the
Post, Wiggins was the owner and editor of the Ellsworth American.


3. DATABASES
A. NEW DATABASE: MARQUIS WHO'S WHO
Marquis Who's Who may be used to look up a name in any of the publisher's
titles from the last ten years (Who's Who in America/Science &
Engineering/American Art/American Women/etc.). The database format makes it
easy to do advanced searching on variables such as gender, occupation,
state, and University. This is an excellent database for basic biographical
data on important names in politics, academia, popular culture, and more.
The Library has a license for one user at a time, so please remember to log
off!
