Elizabeth W. "Betty" Stone, 83, former dean of the School of Library and Information Science at Catholic University and American Library Association President from 1981 to 1982, died March 6 of complications from pneumonia and a lung infection. Stone was the recipient of the 1998 Beta Phi Mu Award for distinguished service to education for librarianship, and was awarded with an honorary ALA membership in 1988 for her contribution to library education. She served as librarian and archivist of the National Presbyterian Church since 1991, where her husband, the late Rev. Thomas A. Stone, had been associate pastor for more than 25 years. Stone obtained a master's degree in library science from Catholic University in 1961 and a doctorate in public administration from American University in 1968. She joined the Catholic University Department of Library Science faculty in 1961, and became dean of its newly established SLIS in 1981.
