In Memoriam

With the death of Miss Geraldine Milne,47, the Library of Hawaii has lost a devoted leader and the League of Women Voters an active and able member. Her League contributions included committee work, Board membership, and the League presidency during 1954-55.

Born in Merrill, Wisconsin, Miss Milne was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin. She came to Hawaii in 1946 as Order Librarian. In 1952 she filled a newly created position of Director of Adult Services at the main Library.

Until her illness, she was active in many professional and community clubs, including the Hawaii Library Association, the American Library Association, the Catholic Women's Guild, the Catholic Library Society and the Y.W.C.A. Board.

She died at the Queen's Hospital on January 5 after a three months' illness. The Rosary was recited and a Mass held on Thursday, January 9 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace.

Those wishing to contribute to a Library of Hawaii Memorial Book Fund may do so through Mrs. Mabel Jackson, Librarian.
