Barbara Klingenhagen

A memorial service will be held in early October for Barbara Klingenhagen, librarian emerita of Dewey Library, who died September 6. Miss Klingenhagen was 87 and a resident of Yarmouthport.

A native of Wollaston, Miss Klingenhagen began library studies after high school and was head of a branch library in Hartford before she was 21. She was a graduate of Oberlin College and began working at MIT in 1935.

She rose rapidly to become head of Dewey Library where she built a collection dealing with social science, economics, management and industrial relations. She retired in 1972.

In retirement she was instrumental in establishing the library at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster.
