One thought on “John Neu

  1. The Wisconsin native, bibliographer, and published novelist John Neu remains, after George Sarton, the gold standard to be emulated in history of science bibliography. Most certainly the profession of the history of science have Neu and the late Magda Whitrow
    to thank for the fields stellar bibliographical control and recall capabilities.
    Neu, in particular, prepared and negotiated the eventual transition to the digital world of annual issues of the Isis Critical Bibliography, and collaborated on the Isis Cumulative Bibliography with Whitrow. Neu remains a personage of great humanity and is remembered fondly by generations of graduate students and history of science professionals as one who gleefully undertook graduate student instructional and mentorship duties at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he was a revered member of the Department of History of Science, the faculty of the university library, and coach on how to be an intellectual and have fun doing it.
