Letter from Gordon Meadows-Hills to "Feminist Studies," October 23, 1971, page 3
Ehc/bsuvc 2. have a "See" reference to "Men—Social and Moral Questions", etc, just as there already is now for "Women". Astoundingly enough, there_are gg references under "Men" at all except "See ﬂaﬂ"(!) and "See Young Men". Apparently on reaching maturity (adulthood,mujority) a human male in the Western world is no longer the subject of objective regard in himself. (My authority throughout in this letter has been Sears List of Subject Headings). . Any light or other assistance you can direct my way will be really appreciated. I am also sending a copy of this letter to the publication staff of Feminist Studies, 606-West 116th St., NY, NY 10027. When I have alternative lists of headings set up, I'll run experiments with students here to see the effect of these changes on catalog use and effectiveness for finding materials generally, as well as the effect on their attitude toward their own sex as well as the opposite, etc. Later on, if the project proves constructive and enlightening, I'll produce an article for publication in the appropriate periodicals, in the library and feminist areas, as a report and summary. Sincerely, V Gordon Meadows-Hills Graduate student, University of Washington School of Librarianship.
