After serving as a librarian and consultant in education-related posts on both the local and state level (including as a consultant for the Ohio State Department of Education), he was named Chief of the School Library Media Services Branch in the Division of Library Development and Services within the Maryland State Department of Education in 1972, remaining there until his appointment to SLA.

He held membership in many professional organizations, including SLA, the American Library Association, and the American Society of Association Executives; and was listed in Who’s Who in America in 1980-1981 and the International Who’s Who of Professionals in 1996. He authored many books and articles related to school library administration and educational media, and in 1981 was listed in Contemporary Authors.
