Sir Charles Hagbert Wright


SIR CHARLES HAGBERT WRIGHT, who died on March 7 last at seventy-seven years of age, was a notahle librarian, a man of letters and a characteristic London figure. He was a man of strong personality tempered with kindness. To describe him as a born librarian may be thought to do him less than justice. He possessed that logic of mind, energy of character, organizing ability and power of handling men which are as necessary to the librarian of a great library as to the man of business. To these qualities he added a wide knowledge of languages and a love of literature.
