Biographical / Historical
John Parsons was born in England in 1850 and emigrated with his family to the U.S. in 1861. He appears to have been working in real estate (1893) before becoming an assistant librarian at Denver Public Library (1897). Parsons began as an assistant to J.C. Dana and was later head of reference under C.R. Dudley. By 1920 he had moved with his wife, Ella J. Parsons (b.1851), to live with their daughter, Florence P. Aronovici, and her family in Berkeley, Calif. John Parsons died in Berkeley in 1928.
