I am pleased to announce that Rebecca Wingfield has accepted our offer to become the Curator for British and American Literature and will begin in early January. Rebecca comes to Stanford from Harvard College Library, where she currently serves as Bibliographic Specialist for North America in Widener Library and is responsible for selecting materials in all formats for English language research collections in the humanities and social sciences.
