Who was Fremont Rider? Robert Molyneux in a number of articles has succinctly outlined Fremont Rider’s career and the impact of his 1944 book, THE SCHOLAR AND THE FUTURE OF THE RESEARCH LIBRARY. (Molyneux, 1986, 1994a, 1994b and 1996) Rider (1885-1962) wrote several travel books in the 1920s and was editor of The Library Journal and Publishers Weekly. He was also an avid genealogist. The American Genealogical-Biographical Index is the second edition of an index begun by Fremont Rider in 1936. It is often referred to in older literature as the “Rider Index.”
