Reviews the ideas and achievements of Henry E. Bliss concerning his Bliss Classification Scheme (BC), based on material in the Henry E. Bliss Papers at Columbia University, New York. Describes his views on various aspects of classification: its function; arrangements; adaptability; and notation. Discusses the role and qualifications of classification staff. Notes the advantages and disadvantages of standard systems, including: LCC, DDC, and UDC. Explores the origins, evolution, publication, and impact of the original BC and its relationship to the radical revision of the BC, 2nd ed.
