MEMBER OF THE MONTH
In October, Dwight celebrated 34 years as a law librarian. He began his career as a reference librarian at the University of Baltimore Law Library in 1981 and moved to the University of Notre Dame Law Library in 1986. Dwight has worked at Notre Dame ever since, serving as head of reference for many years, and now assuming a new role as associate director. Dwight has also been a member of the law school’s admissions committee since 1988 and is the long-time faculty advisor for the Notre Dame Black Law Students Association. He has been the university’s ombudsperson for discriminatory harassment for over a dozen years.
Dwight has been a member of several AALL committees. He has served as chair of the Leadership Development, Grants, and Recruitment committees. He was the second chair of the Committee on Minorities and the first chair of the Black Caucus. One of the highlights of his AALL activities was serving as master of ceremonies at the closing banquet of the 2004 Annual Meeting in Boston.
In his spare time, Dwight enjoys bicycling (he recently completed his 65th century ride) and wood carving. He was excited to have an exhibit of his folk art carvings at local museums in 2011 and 2012. Dwight and his wife, Mary, have four children.
