For some reason I was curious if there were any famous historical figures who worked as librarians earlier in their careers, and I stumbled onto this. Man, what a sexy, sexy list! I mean, if you're into balding male intellectuals, politicians, poets and, well, dictators.
And of course, there's: Goethe, Longfellow, David Hume, Immanuel Kant, Philip Larkin and the Brothers Grimm. Know any good ones that I should add? (Or any on here that I should take off?) Send 'em in!
