Mrs. Malcolm McLod of Pittsburgh has sp 'nt the last eight years in collecting and supplying books free to hospitals, prisons, orphanages and remo'e sections, not only in this country but throughout the world. "I began this work because I wanted to do something humanitarian that I felt was really worthwhile," Mrs. McLeod said, on the completion of a visit In Boston and New York, where Lhe made an ap. tal for books for the packhorse libraries which circulate In the mountainous and remote districts of Kentucky. Mrs. McLeod's husband, Prof. Malcolm McLeod, is head of the English department at the Car-ncRie Institute of Technology In Pittsburgh. Large Prisons Well Stocked. "In my appeals I ask that all! donations of books and magazines be sent direct, prepaid, to their destination, whether hospital, prison, orphan asylum or leper colony," Mrs. McLeod continued. "I find there is a dearth of reading matter at the tuberculosis hospitals, while the large prisons usually have well-stocked libraries. "My largest supply usually comes from libraries, all discarded books. Often I receive the donation of a complete library. This occurred recently when a private school gave me its library of children s books.1 which the Bureau of Education,! Department of the Interior, sent with a free bill of lading for distribution in Alaska. ; "I also sent a memorial library,1 consisting of four large cases of books, to the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Dr. Judah L. Magnes, the president of the institution, had a bookplate made for each book, in Hebrew and English. It was given in memory of Karl Satler, who was commodore of the Nantucket Yaehtj Club. Need In Kentucky. "Other large donations have gone to Labrador, Egypt. India and Korea, and to the various leper colonies. All kinds of good books and magazines are urgently needed for the mountain families In Kentucky, where many children are teaching their parents to read and write. Two years ago In Whitley county there was a population of 10,000 with nothing to read. "The packhorse libraries, with headquarters In Lexington, Ky., route the reading matter, packed In saddlebags, on horse or mule back, to remote districts, often through the dry beds of streams as trails, in order to reach the mountaineers. They need religious books, and an effort is being made to place a Bible In the home of every mountaineer who cannot afford to buy one. My appeals for this work Is usually made through the Kentucky newspapers and In the seven surrounding states, and the re-iponit Is always very gratifying."
