J. Christian Bay, Hans Christian Andersen, librarian, Chicago, National Book League
The legendary Jens Christian Bay, librarian of the John Crerar Library of Chicago, and Danish-American writer, never met Hans Christian Andersen, of course, since he had been but three years old when Andersen died in 1875. And, Hans Christian Andersen never visited America though he had been offered countless invitations.
