Dorothy Merrow Lovett, after graduation from Radcliffe in 1931, completed the Boston Public Library Training Course in 1932 and began working at the Kirsten Business Branch of the Boston Public Library. During the summers of 1940-1943 she attended Columbia Library School where she gained her B.S. in Library Science in 1943. She married Robert Lovett in 1946 and became Business Branch Librarian in the Boston Public Library in 1948. She retired from this job in 1953 to devote her time to her Victorian house in Reading and her aging parents who made their home with her and her husband.


Dorothy Merrow Lovett's papers consist of clippings, correspondence, programs and course work for her Radcliffe years and some reunion material.
