Hering, Leonora C. (1898-1983) | Morse Department of Special Collections

Name: Hering, Leonora C. (1898-1983)
Variant Name: Mrs. P.T. Hering; Mrs. Preston T. Hering; Nora Hering
Fuller Form: Leonora Crutchett Hering

Historical Note: Leonora C. "Nora" Hering (1898-1983) was a librarian who collected poulty art, artifacts, and publications. The scarcity of fresh eggs during the Second World War prompted Hering to begin breeding poultry. She voraciously read books and articles on the topic, frequently contacting land grant university librarians in order to track down elusive publications. She subscribed to poultry journals and ammassed a sizable collection of books on the subject. Her interest drove her to publish articles and occasional works, including "The Chicken in Art and Literature" and a small pamphlet titled, "Firsts in Poultry."
