Abstract::
"This collection of documents, pamphlets, and manuscripts was willed to the U.S. Civil Service Commission Library by Ismar Baruch on his death in 1956. Since Mr. Baruch numbered among his hobbies both bookbinding and photography, along with whittling and philately, he bound the collection himself and photographed his own bookplate. The collection relates predominately to the Federal civil service, but includes a few general compilations on public personnel administration and classification. Most of the material is arranged chronologically, but, with classification and pay in separate sections since theses are the two major areas covered. The selection of documents and papers made by Mr. Baruch for retention and binding reflects his wide range of activity and research in classification and pay areas and presents an excellent historical picture of legislative and executive activities, particularly during the period 1914-1954." - p. iii of Mr. Baruch's guide
