American Connection Continued: The Panjab After Dickinson
Nagar, Murari Lal
A study of the successive issues of The Modern Librarian convincingly demonstrates the the revival of the library movement in the Panjab beginning with the year 1929 was to a large extent due to the sustained efforts of Friedrich Mowbray Velte, a noble American scholar-librarian, who was the creator and the first Chief Editor of the journal and also the Chairman of the Governing Council of the Punjab Library Association, the honorable position he held for many years. The account of the work and works of Asa Don Dickinson has been succinctly reported in our earlier publication Contributions of Asa Don Dickinson (1876-1940): First American Library Pioneer in British India (Columbia, MO: International Library Center, 1990.). An attempt will be made in the following pages to present some highlights of the library movement that was continued in the Panjab by the colleagues and students of that great American library pioneer, Asa Don Dickinson.
