Stan Ransom was born in Winsted, Connecticut in 1928, served in the Army of Occupation in Japan and graduated from Yale University. He was in the Apollo Glee Club in his sophomore year under Fenno Heath, and he sang bass in his junior and senior year under famed director Marshall Bartholomew. After receiving a Master's Degree in Library Service from Columbia University, he worked as a librarian for the New York Public Library for five years. From 1958-1974 he was Director of the Huntington, L.I., Public Library.
He expanded this library and its services and oversaw its move to a much larger building. He worked to promote library services in New York State and was involved in the formation of public, academic and school library systems. In 1972 he was elected President of the New York Library Association. In 1974 he became Director of the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System in Plattsburgh, serving 29 member public libraries, from which he retired in 1991. He currently volunteers in the local hospital library.
