Librarian of Congress Luther Evans and Asst. Librarian David C. Mearns talk about the life and career of John Russell Young, who was appointed by Pres. McKinley to be the 7th Librarian of Congress in 1897. Mearns refers to him as the "great beginner" since he was the first to create a staff of specialists and separate divisions including the Division of the Blind. His wife even organized a reading hour for the blind. He was librarian for only eighteen months when he suddenly died.
