Paul Doty

"Let Me Show You a Book"

After twenty years and a variety of responsibilities at the St. Lawrence University Libraries, Paul picked up with Special Collections and Archives in January of 2018.  It appears one’s mid-fifties are as good a time for a change as any. The opportunity to have a chance to delve into everything that is iconic and inspirational in books and manuscripts was the motivation for the change.  Along the way at St. Lawrence Paul has taught a variety of courses in St. Lawrence’s First Year Program, worked with students to build a couple of canoes, and answered a lot of research inquiries. He has published poems or essays in publications like the Mississippi Review, the Cortland Review, the Great Lakes Review,Poetry Pacific, the Reference Librarian, and has an essay forthcoming in Journal of Interlibrary Loan, Document Delivery & Electronic Reserve.   He lives in Canton New York with his wife Agnes, who is the manager of the Rensselaer Falls and Morley branches of the Canton Free Library, and his youngest daughter Margaret.  Agnes and Paul have three other adult children, Anna, Emerson, and Gillan.
