An independent scholar, KATHERINE WOLFF received her PhD in American literature and history from Boston University.
"The history of the Boston Athenaeum is by no means an untouched subject. Much of this work, however, has been done either by apologists or belittlers of what are taken to be top-down initiatives. One of the great virtues of Katherine Wolff's study is the middle course it steers between partisanship and judgmentalism, underscoring the fundamental point that cultural institutions of this or any kind cannot be reduced to singular monoliths." - Lawrence Buell, author of Emerson and New England Literary Culture"
