A librarian\'s legacy

From the Washington Post:

One of the best, most underused collections of Judaica and Hebraica in the country is located at George Washington University.

Donated six years ago by the family of I. Edward Kiev, the chief librarian of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York City, the collection contains more than 18,000 books and manuscripts on religion, philosophy, the classics and the arts . . .

Reuven Schlencker, a rabbinical scholar and cataloguer at the university\'s Marion Gelman Library, calls the archive \"one of the top 10 university collections of Judaica in the country.\" Besides the Library of Congress, no other area library approaches the Kiev Collection in range and depth of Judaic studies, he said.
