If you’re a regular reader, you probably realize that I did not join the US Army in 1966. That was David Levinson, who spent his Army career working in a psychiatric hospital in North Carolina. Here are the other people you’ll meet on the Berkshire Blog:
* Marcy Ross, Editor, has worked on Berkshire reference publications for over five years. She is our sidebar maven and an amazing source of pop culture trivia. Marcy scouts out global information better than anyone; she’s always bringing great new stuff to our attention.
* Carrie Owens, Developmental Editor, is responsible for the Libraries We Love and also works on an array of new project ideas. Her background in the film business in LA brings us a welcome new perspective, and she loves boooks just as much as we do.
* David Levinson is a cultural anthropologist who started by studying homelessness on the Bowery in New York City. His professional research has focused on social problems–perhaps inspired by those early days in the Army psychiatric hospital. We cofounded Berkshire in 1998.
