Welcome to my home page at!  

 I have been a Reference Librarian at UML for over 30 years, [part-time (at night) for the first 8 years.]  My specialities are the Pure Sciences: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Sciences and Mathematics.  I am also Head of Public Services, and Acting Head of Serials.   I have taught the 84:260 Information Retrieval course for the Chemistry Department for 19 years in partnership with Dr. Ruth Tanner, Department of Chemistry. Ruth retired in 2007 and I now work with Dr. Marina Ruths. You may call me at x3209 [978-934-3209] and I will do my best to answer any questions you have. My office is located on the first floor of Lydon Library,  and you are welcome to drop by at any time. Or look for me at the Lydon Reference Desk.  Feel free to email me.

I have two children, Steve (RPI, 1996), an engineer at Nortel Networks, Bedford, MA., who married Danielle in October 2005, (my second daughter), and Kris (UNE, 1998, BU, 2008), who works for FormaTherapeutics, researching future cancer treatments.  Steve and Danielle had my granddaughter Emily in January 2008, so I am enjoying being a Nana.  I like gardening, wildflowers, walking, cruises, and weekend trips. My pride and joy is my four season solar room, which has (too) many plants. I also enjoy knitting, especially complex patterns, also counted cross stitch embroidery, and both Sudoku and Double-Croustic puzzles. I bought a piano, and like to play easy classical music, like Bach preludes, or Pachelbel's Canon--but never for public consumption.  I presently have two cats

I was born in North Carolina (but only stayed 30 days--Dad was shipped out to the Pacific in WW2) and lived in Connecticut, Texas, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio before settling into New Hampshire 36 years ago.   My late husband Jack and I met at the University of Michigan, where I was in Library School and he was studying Chemical Engineering.  After a short stint working outside of Chicago, Jack took a Chemical Engineering position with Hampshire Chemical Corporation [now sold and torn down] and we moved to New Hampshire, where we bought a lovely house in Hudson in 1973. Jack retired from Hampshire in November of 2001 and passed away on April 9, 2003 from Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), a very rare disease which closely mimics Parkinson's.  His remembrance page is here.

In 2001, my mother, Ruth Schulz,  moved to Oregon to live with my sister Suzon.  She passed away in October 2008.  Her remembrance photo album is here.  My sister Charlotte (Charli) and I emptied and sold our family home in Meriden Connecticut.  38 Antonio Avenue had been in the Schulz family for 90 years.  We wrote a history of the house, both for the new owner and as a catharsis for us.  We have both history and photographs.  Here are some family photographs.

My sister Suzon Schulz is an artist. She has been sending computer generated sketches to me.  I have put some of the sketches up here.  Find some of her paintings here.

I am also interested in genealogy.  I have an extensive file on my Schulz-Eberhardt-Hemsath background and some information on Jack's Muskiewicz and Wysocki backgrounds.  I will be experimenting with uploading these files as web pages.

Find Charli's pages here.
