Google book search find

One of the things that we've been working on with the "google guys" we're working with is to make sure that attribution is accorded to Penn State when we digitize a book.  I was looking for books that we've scanned in Google Book Search this morning and realized that I was approaching the task in the wrong way...I needed to start with things I know we've scanned and work from that angle.  And then my mind started to wander....

My Uncle Wayne was a professor at Dartmouth for about 40 years.  He taught in the Amos Tuck Business School.  Both he and my Aunt Jean have always been tremendous supporters of me through the years.  I'm not sure I would have gone to grad school without their encouragement.  Wayne was a prolific writer.  He wrote many books on business and agriculture, including books on Cargill, John Deere, the Molly Maguires, and the trucking industry.  As I was looking in GBS for things published by him, I ran across "Oral History Interview with Wayne Broehl."

"Dr. Broehl discusses his teaching career beginning in 1954 at the Amos Tuck School of Business Administration and his role advising Dartmouth College and its trustees on the college's investment policies."
Discovery is one of the best things about GBS.  I would never have known about this recording or some of the other many things that he wrote if not for GBS.  I'm going to see if Dartmouth will lend it through ILL now.  What a wonderful discovery.
