The announcement was met by applause by the Beinecke staff: Edwin C. Schroeder, known to his friends as “E.C.,” was Yale’s most beloved catalogue librarian until he was named head of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library and Yale’s new associate librarian last semester. After three consecutive identity checks inside Bunshaft’s marble cube, WEEKEND reached Schroeder’s modernist, underground office looking out on Isamu Noguchi’s “The Garden (Pyramid, Sun, and Cube).” Unsurprisingly, we talked books. Perhaps even more unsurprisingly, Google came up.
