Carolyn Parker: Desperately Seeking Ethical Culture

By March 10, 2024No Comments

For Carolyn, The Bibliography of Ethical Culture: 1876-2026 began as a means to learn more about the history of thought in the Movement to enhance her own Ethical growth. Her goal now is to make what she’s discovered accessible to everyone in our Movement as well as to like-hearted members of the public in anticipation of the 150th anniversary of the founding of Ethical Culture. She joined us to talk about all you ever wanted to know about bibliographies, plus the care and feeding of archives, the problem(s) of online libraries, and what the Wayback Machine tells us.
