Denise has been the head of cataloging at the Rinn Law Library for 17 years. She has been a member of the Chicago Association of Law Libraries (CALL) , almost as long. She has contributed greatly to the life of the association with service on four committees and tenure as both Secretary and Treasurer of the association. So it is no surprise that she has been awarded the association's Agnes and Harvey Reid Award for Outstanding Contribution to Law Librarianship for 2013.
CALL has been around since 1947 and the award was established 31 years ago. Two other Rinn law library librarians have received the award in the past, Mary Lu Linnane and Judith Gaskell. The award was named for two people who were long-time friends and generous supporters of both CALL and the American Association of Law Libraries.
Harvey Reid was a Canadian lawyer who ended up in the U.S. and had a long and successful career with West Publishing including President, and Chairman of the Board. Agnes Reid, his wife, worked here in Illinois for the legal publisher Burdette-Smith, which was a subsidiary of West.
Congratulations to Denise on the award ! It will be officially presented at the CALL May business meeting.
