Shih-Sheng Hu Led the Creation of KF Modified in 1968

I am sad to report that Shih-Sheng Hu, who organized and led the development of KF Modified, passed away on Sunday at the age of 88. In the summer of 1968 Hu gathered together a group of 5 librarians to discuss issues surrounding the classification and organization of their law library collections. It was that meeting that led to the development of the KF Classification Modified for Use in Canadian Law Libraries.

There’s an obituary available with more about his life.
