Around 1893 Melvil and Annie Dewey began the Lake Placid Club, a private model community at Lake Placid, New York. In 1903, at their annual New York Library Association "Library Week," New York Public Library librarian, Henry M. Leipziger browsed a 1901 Lake Placid catalog which gave the criteria for membership with an added line referring to the exclusion of Jews. Outraged, he contacted lawyer Louis Marshall who, with ten other men, signed a petition to the Board of Regents calling for the removal of Dewey as State Librarian. Dewey found an ally in Isidore Singer who suggested he compile a pamphlet which included the petition, Dewey's response, and letters to various newspapers, so Singer could forward it to the members of the Jewish Publication Society. An account is given in Irrepressible reformer: a biography of Melvil Dewey (1996). The author, Wayne A. Weigand, refers to the pamphlet as a circular entitled "Action on Petition to Remove State Librarian." The first forty page pamphlet, compiled by the husband of Dewey's niece, Asa O. Gallup, the treasurer of the Lake Placid Club, prefaced it with a paragraph to the membership of the Club that it was to provide background when deciding whether to vote to change the membership criteria. A second, fifty-six page pamphlet, included more letters to the editor, including one by Isidor Singer. Melvil Dewey resigned as State Librarian, effective January 1, 1906
