As Director, Dr. Hammond guided The Bancroft Library from being a quiet preserve of advanced scholars concerned with the development and Western North America to being a fullfledged, largely independent, modern research library. During his administration, the collections grew exponentially and Bancroft's staff expanded and evolved into a group of specialists concerned with all aspects of the acquisition, use, and administration of the library's resources.
