Margaret Goodrich talks about her twenty-four year civil service career in the U.S. Army Library Service and running libraries for military personnel around the world. Goodrich talks about her employment prior to joining the Library Service and says that in July 1945 she became the first Army librarian assigned to a post in Germany. Goodrich says that she left the Army after six years but rejoined during the Korean conflict and took a position as a librarian at the Fitzsimons Army Medical Center in Denver. She discusses her U.S. and overseas assignments, a librarian's duties, and a particularly hazardous episode in Vietnam when the car she was riding in was fired upon, forcing her to duck for cover with fellow passenger, actor James Franciscus. Goodrich is interviewed by Marjorie Brown.
