Collection Overview

Biography / History
"She has built the library up from one that could be housed in a single room to a library that now contains more than 400,000 volumes and is fourth or fifth in size among the libraries of the South. It would be impossible to estimate the value of her contribution to the University of Kentucky." (Board of Trustees Minutes 6/25/1948:48).
This is how President Donovan described Margaret I. King in 1948. As the University's first librarian, King played a vital role in the development and growth of the library at the University of Kentucky.
Margaret Isadora King was born in Lexington, Kentucky, on September 1, 1879, to Gilbert Hinds and Elizabeth K. King. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Kentucky (University of Kentucky) in 1898, and did clerical work in the Lexington law firm of Allen and Bronston from 1899 to 1905.
In 1905, King began her long career at the University of Kentucky by serving as secretary to President James K. Patterson. She became involved with the library when President Patterson asked her to organize the University's first library in 1909. While organizing the library, she continued as secretary to the president until she was named the University's first librarian in 1912.
During her career as librarian of the University, King continued her education. She performed some graduate work at the University of Michigan, and in 1929, she earned her Bachelor of Science in Librarianship from Columbia University.
Some of King's professional activities included the following: serving as the Kentucky Library Association president from 1926 to 1927, serving as a trustee for the Lexington Public Library for many years, and directing the survey of Kentucky libraries from 1936 to 1938 for the American Library Association's Survey of Research Materials in Southern Libraries. King's development of library methods courses eventually led to the establishment of a Department of Library Science at the University of Kentucky.
In 1948, after King had directed the University's library for 39 years, the Board of Trustees voted to name the library the Margaret I. King Library. This was a special honor since the Board rarely names buildings in honor of those still living.
Although King retired as librarian in 1949, she continued to perform some work for the library at the University of Kentucky. She died in Lexington on April 13, 1966.

Contents of the Collection

Alphabetical File Series

The Alphabetical File Series consists of folders which are arranged in alphabetical order by topic. These topics mostly relate to Margaret I. King's activities and to the development of the library at the University of Kentucky. The materials in these folders include clippings, correspondence, presentations by King, and programs from conferences and events. Personal or biographical materials which relate to Margaret I. King are listed under "King." These materials include King's class notes, her memoirs of President James K. Patterson, and her correspondence with people such as Frances Jewell McVey and Glanville Terrell. Correspondence which relates to a specific topic is included with that topic. Correspondence with certain people, such as President Frank L. McVey, is included under that person's name. Other correspondence is included in "Correspondence - General." The first folder of this general correspondence contains letters from 1909 to 1918. The remaining general correspondence folders contain letters from 1918 to 1950 and are arranged in alphabetical order by the name of the organization or person sending the letter. Several topics in this series include: the dedications of libraries at the University of Kentucky, gifts to the library at the University of Kentucky, plans for state-wide library development, and the activities of the library and the university during World War I and World War II. Other topics include the procedures of various library departments, library orientation for freshmen, and the business and social activities of the library staff. Several organizations which are represented in this collection include the American Library Association, the Kentucky Department of Library and Archives, the Kentucky Library Association, and the Lexington Public Library.
