Activist librarian made a difference in publishing, literature and the arts

Fascinating obituary from Saturday's Globe and Mail. Feminist and peacenik challenged the status quo, launched the journal Emergency Librarian and helped stabilize Canada's magazine industry. 'Her principles were so much a part of her life'. Sherrill Cheda was born in Osgood, Ind., on Feb. 15, 1936. She died at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto of complications from acute leukemia early on the morning of June 7, 2008. She was 72.
