Westbrook Junior College's Deborah Nichols Morton (1857-1947) stands before a Hersey Hall Library shelf in this 1930 glossy, black and white photograph, which also shows two students seated at a study table in the back room of the Library. An outstanding and civic minded educator, Miss Morton was serving as librarian in the 1930s.
In 1934 this small and cramped Library in Hersey Hall would be revamped and expanded under the direction of Dr. Milton D. Proctor who arrived in 1933 to serve as president of Westbrook Seminary and Junior College.
