The article begins: "Lillian Moore Bradshaw blazed a 38-year path in Dallas that cleared a management path for women in city government.
In 1946, she was one of the first married women hired at the Dallas Public Library, where she was the first female director 16 years later. She was the first woman to lead a major U.S. library. And she capped off her decades of public service as an assistant city manager/liaison when Dallas played host to the 1984 Republican National Convention.
Mrs. Bradshaw, 95, died Tuesday of natural causes at an Avalon Residential Care Home in Dallas." Read more of this remarkable librarian at
