You’re likely to enjoy meeting Andy Huse. Andy’s an Assistant Librarian in Special Collections at USF Tampa Library. He’s also an alumnus of USF SLIS (see biographical information below), a historian, an author and a lover of good food.

On November 4th (Wednesday) at 6 PM, he’ll be joining us in CIS 2020 to talk about his journey in the library world.

Here are some excerpts from his web page in the USF Libraries catalog:

“Andrew Huse received M.A. degrees in History (2000) and Library and Information Science (2005) from the University of South Florida…  In 2003, he wrote a successful nomination proposal to list USF’s Chinsegut Hill manor house on the National Register of Historic Places. He co-authored “The Seabreeze by the Bay Cookbook” (2000)… He conducted the primary research for “The University of South Florida: The First Fifty Years.” In conjunction with the Tampa Bay History Center, Huse is Assistant Editor of the revived Tampa Bay History journal… Huse…conducts historic tours of Chinsegut Hill near Brooksville.”

NOTE (for starving grad students): you may also want to attend Andy’s 6:30 PM talk on November 10 in the Siboney Room at Ybor City’s Columbia Restaurant (free tapas!) where he’ll be signing copies of  his new book – The Columbia Restaurant: Celebrating a Century of History, Culture, and Cuisine (University Press of Florida, pubdate: 11/12/2009). This latter talk is presented in conjunction with the Tampa Bay History Center’s “Florida Conversations” series.
