    Abstract:
    Salo Baron’s impact on Judaic scholarship in the 20th century is hardly unknown. Moreover, his leadership of the Jewish Cultural Reconstruction Project solidly places him in the annals of the history of bibliography as well. Less well-known, however, is the outsized impact Baron had on the collections at his home institution. In this chapter, I will discuss how Salo Baron’s connections and advocacy for the Judaica collections at Columbia University ensured its place as a top primary source collection of Judaica in the United States.
