Brandt’s Honor on the Books

Congratulations to Randal S. Brandt, who has been given the Distinguished Librarian Award from the Librarians Association of the University of California’s Berkeley chapter. Brandt, you may recall, is a librarian at UC Berkeley’s Bancroft Library and the curator of that institution’s California Detective Fiction Collection. He also happens to be the creator of the Web’s A David Dodge Companion and an occasional contributor to The Rap Sheet. (Among other things, he wrote our wonderful piece this last August about the real-life burglary that inspired David Dodge to write To Catch a Thief).

(Hat tip to Elizabeth Foxwell.)
