Cataloger Daniel Scheide

Bela Lugosi, Dracula 1931

Daniel is a cataloger, both for the Jaffe Center and for Special Collections in general. He has degrees from Berklee College of Music and the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and is very active in the Association of Jewish Libraries. If asked to pick a favorite book, he would most likely choose The Elephant Vanishes by Haruki Murakami and then spend the rest of the day second-guessing that choice. He's got two sides / and they're both friends.
