Gertrude Howard Mason librarian
Gertrude Mason (1887-1971), librarian at Wiley College at Marshall, Texas for 42 years, was the first Black professional librarian in Texas to become a member of TLA and was an early inspiration to many African-American librarians in the state. The Wiley Carnegie Library was, at that time, the only building on a campus for African-Americans used exclusively for library purposes.
