Those 60 years

To Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Anderson, the community should stop and honor the three score years they have travel life’s road together. Their life and the record of their lives give material over which the community, the state and the nation might ponder for hours in solemn meditation. They stand before the community, living examples of what God hath joined together. They have traveled those sixty years, not over days and weeks and months and years of modern conveniences but they have traveled in a way that started with the things of homespun nature. No doubt their trials and hardships have been many and often were such that tested their most excellent manhood and womanhood - a test that we venture the modern couples of today would seldom fathom together. To the modern generation, Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Anderson stand towering and shining examples of what weeding life should be and how it should end. We pray that God in his infinite Wisdom and Understanding shall watch over this remarkable couple and make their closing days one round of golden dreams, filled with expressed appreciation of what they have meant in this community, this state and this nation.

The award presentation will be by Charles O’Halloran of Jefferson City, the Missouri State Librarian.  Mrs. Prosser described Sir Phillip as a public relations and communications consultant who was on a speaking tour of the United States. His topic will be ‘Caring and Communicating.” Mrs. Anderson founded the Christian County Library n 1954. She was the librarian for 20 years. And he last great achievement was the new building which the modern up-to-date library now occupied. “Without her,” said Mrs. Marilyn Prosser, who succeeded Mrs. Anderson when she retired in 1974, “we wouldn’t have this new building.” Even after her death, Mrs. Anderson’s influence on the library’s growth is continuing. Memorial contributions still coming in, are being used to buy microfilm of Christian County newspaper issues daring back to 1898 and up to 1953. The microfilm purchase was at the suggestion of the family. Newspapers on the microfilm will include the old Sparta Christian County Leader, the Billings Times, the Ozark Herald, the Ozark Tribune and the Christian County Republican (not the Ozark Headliner}. A microfilm reader has already been purchased and about 36 rolls of microfilm have been ordered, developed by the University of Missouri Film Laboratory. Following is the nomination letter by Mrs. Marilyn Prosser. It sets out Mrs. Anderson’s public career and library accomplishments. “Lucile Anderson has had a colorful and outstanding career in library service. “After completing a 20-year career as a newspaper journalist for the Springfield (Mo.) Republican and the St. Louis Times and a second 20-year career in the book store business, she was asked to help the people of Christian County establish a library, thus beginning her third 20-year career. “In 1954, in a small one-time livery stable, the Christian County Library started with a collection of 1,300 volumes. Over the years, Mrs. Anderson was very involved in the growth and development of the library’s collection. At her retirement, the collection had grown to 49,000 volumes. “The school administrators in the county will remember Mrs. Anderson’s undying devotion to the young people. A desire to see libraries in every school district throughout the county was one of her special goals. In 1974, all eight school districts has library services for their youngsters. “One project Mrs. Anderson had a deep fondness for was the collecting of local history of Christian County. In 1959, she served as an editorial supervisor in the writing of Christian County: It’s first 100 Years. She developed an outstanding collection of materials on the county as well as Southwest Missouri. The room housing these materials now bears the name “Anderson History Room” in her honor. “As early as 1957, Mrs. Anderson worked with Willard Dennis and Vivian Maddux in forming what is now the Southwest Regional  Library Service, Inc. in Bolivar. “In 1961, the Bibliographic Center” was created. Mrs. Anderson was instrumental in the development in Southwest Missouri. The Bibliographic Center then evolved into O.P.L.S. (Ozark Pioneer Library System) and finally the Southwest Missouri Library Network. Lucile Anderson was actively involved in each stage of growth in library cooperation. “I hope you will give her high consideration for the Meritorious Award.”
