Abstract: Although William Alanson Borden was an important figure of his times, yet he was not a national figure. He was an engineer-librarian. He designed a book stand, a newspaper file, called "Boston Athenaeum Newspaper File," a newspaper reading table and many other library appliances, including the removable-drawer catalog card cabinet. He developed many library classification schemes. He also experimented with printed catalog card distribution service. At the professional organization level, he was one of the founders of the Connecticut Library Association. Borden was highly honored as the harbinger of American library heritage in Baroda and beyond and is remembered as "An Apostle of International Librarianship."
