For the record
In our Aug. 28 issue, we identified historian J.S. Holliday as assistant director of the Bancroft Library. Holliday, who hosts tonight’s KQED-FM program “A Library for California” (8 p.m.) on the history of the Bancroft, has in fact not held that position since 1962. We regret the error.
