SHIRLEY DIANE (STOTT) HENDERSON, August 25, 1935 - December 5, 2019.

Shirley Diane (Stott) Henderson died on December 5, 2019 at Sunnybrook Hospital, Toronto.

Diane was for many years the Chief Librarian of the Faculty of Library and Information Science Library at the University of Toronto from 1973 to 1996. In her later years, she dedicated her time to volunteering with the Royal Ontario Museum, Ontario Field Ornithologists and Retired Academics and Librarians of the University of Toronto. Diane was an intensely independent person, an indefatigable traveller, a keen theatre-goer, an opera buff and an enthusiastic gardener. She was passionate about libraries and books.

Diane was co-author (with Edith Tyne Jarvi) of Guide to Basic Reference Materials for Canadian Libraries, 4th edition, published for the Faculty of Library Science by the University of Toronto Press in 1974.

Diane was a contributor to the National Library's publication by Claire England, Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery in Canada (1983).

Diane was ELAN special edition editor and wrote “University of Toronto Faculty of Information Studies” for ELAN's Summer 2004 special issue A History of Education for Library and Information Studies in Canada.

Diane also wrote “ELA’s Early Years, 1990-1995” for the Fall 2004 issue of ELAN which celebrated the 100th anniversary of library education in Canada.

Diane Henderson served on the executive committee of the Retired Academics and Librarians of University of Toronto (RALUT) as Treasurer and became Vice-President in 2009.
