It's easy to imagine a cataloger at the end of the day picking up that pamphlet thinking 'I'll do one more.' I can feel the deflation as it sinks in what is in hand. The interior battle to be professional about an unprofessional thing begins. I would have banged my head on the typewriter keys and turned in the catalog card that way. What would the more professional librarian have done -- faithfully typed the entire thing or typed a fraction sufficient to recognize the work (of someone never to be read ... until now).

I'm pretty sure that I woulsn't've gotten that far...maybe the pamphlet owul dhave gone to a continuous-bottom-of-the-pile, forever to be done.
