Professor Healey describes the work of Charles R. McCarthy who, in the early twentieth century, almost single-handedly created the legislative reference library concept. In doing so, he developed radical new forms of reference librarianship, tirelessly promoted the concept of special librarianship, and spread legislative reference services around the country.
