Deaths

Carlton Rochell, former dean of the New York University (NYU) Libraries, has died. Not only did Rochell help create an innovative library for NYU and the library system in Atlanta/Fulton County, Georgia, but also he integrated three other public libraries in the south. In addition, he founded the Research Library Association of South Manhattan with the New School, Parsons, and Cooper Union, and saved the New-York Historical Society Library during perilous times. As dean of the NYU Division of Libraries, Rochell launched the first mini-computer based online catalog in the country, incorporated the Courant Institute, Business and Real Estate Institute Libraries, and NYU Archives, founded the Wagner Labor Archives, launched the Elmer H. Bobst Awards for Arts and Letters, brought the NYU Press under the management of the libraries—among the first such models in the country—and integrated campus media and video production services, cable television for the residence halls, and NYU-TV. Nationally, Carlton served as chairman of the board of the Research Libraries Group, board member of the Association of Research Libraries, and ALA Council member. Among his many leadership roles in the library profession, he served on the Steering Committee and led the New York delegation to the White House Conference on Libraries in 1979, was a member of the New York State Governor’s Commission on Libraries, and chaired the New York Regents Advisory Council on Libraries. He was the author of a number of articles and books, including Dreams Betrayed: Working in the Technological Age, with sociologist Christina Spellman (Lexington Books, 1987).
