TitleThe Linda Hall Library
AbstractHistory of the Linda Hall Library, its scientific holdings, and building itself at 5109 Cherry Street, the former residence of the Hall family of Herbert and Linda Hall. Description also of its international patrons and journals and of hired translators for these foreign languages.
NotesHerbert F. Hall [or Herbert Hall] was born in Maine in 1858, and his first job was in a grain elevator in Chapman, Kas. He remained in the grain business more than fifty years, and became a man of far greater wealth than most Kansas Citians imagined. He established the Hall-Baker Grain Company, which he sold in 1930, and at the time of his death February 27, 1941, was chairman of the board of the Hart-Bartlett-Sturtevant Grain Company. Mrs. Hall was the former Miss Linda Southall of Richmond, Va. They were married in Kansas City, December 23, 1885. Linda Hall died in 1938.
