Miss Estelle Lutrell: an exhibit about UA Library History
Estelle's 1930 'Grand Canyon Tour' for ALA dignitaries.
A cartoon by Reg Manning in the Arizona Republican (June 15, 1930), reprinted in Library Journal (July 1930) caricatures what UA professor Margaret F. Maxwell has called the "Grand Canyon Caper." In a brilliant promotional stroke for Arizona's libraries Estelle added a full day at the Grand Canyon for a train full of Eastern librarians on their way to the ALA convention in Los Angeles.
