Abstract: Together with Wayne Shirley, Louis Shores began the American Library History Round Table in 1947. With the addition of N. Orwin Rush and John David Marshall, they dominated its proceedings for the first two decades. When Shores and Shirley turned over the control of the Round Table to Shore's appointed successor, Michael H. Harris, and his democratically elected successors in 1972, the four founders left an organization that, though small, was popular and had focused the agenda of library history.
