Helen Taliferro – Former Air Force Libraries Leader

From Bob Lane, Library Director Emeritus, Air University Library via Gail Nicula, DMIL Director for DoD

TALIAFERRO, HELEN

Taliaferro, Helen Naomi, age 92, a former Montgomery resident, died in Coppell, Texas, on February 23. A memorial service will be held in the near future. Helen is survived by a legion of friends and colleagues in Montgomery and throughout the United States. Born in Idaho on 26 January 1922, and raised in Ft. Worth, Texas, by adoptive parents, Helen attended Texas Woman’s University (then called Texas State College for Women) where she graduated in 1942 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Library Science. She was married to Lt Col Lloyd A. “Tony” Taliaferro, USAF, who predeceased her. Helen came to Montgomery and Maxwell AFB in May of 1982 to be Chief of the Reader Services Division at the Air University Library, one of the country’s largest military libraries. She came here from Scott AFB, Illinois, where she had served for many years as Command Librarian for the USAF Military Airlift Command, with bases and libraries spread around the world. During the next 12 years, Helen distinguished herself by a commitment to university library service that exceeded all expectations. She was respected as a colleague and loved as a friend. Helen retired in February, 1994, but by then she had embarked on a new career as a fiscal supporter of advanced library education for students at her alma mater. By 1996 she had donated over $12,000 for scholarships, and in 2008 the school announced that her estate had established the Helen Naomi Taliaferro Library Science Scholarship Endowment Fund within the TWU Foundation. In lieu of other memorials please send donations in Ms. Taliaferro’s name to the TWU Foundation.

"Balance for Oil, Imbalance for LNG?" (recorded webcast) Center for Strategic & International Studies

https://www.csis.org/events/balance-oil-imbalance-lng

"The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host Fereidun Fesharaki, Founder and Chairman of FGE, for a presentation and discussion on the current state of global oil and gas markets, one balancing as the other appears to tip toward imbalance.

Oil markets are struggling to reach a balance, and with robust demand growth and continued OPEC cutbacks, a balance might be reached in the 2017/2018 period. LNG markets are facing a prolonged period of imbalance, perhaps through about 2023, before a balance can be reached. While many advocate new U.S. LNG projects, around 50% of the projects currently under construction have still not been sold to end users.

Dr. Fesharaki's work is recognized worldwide for pioneering oil and gas market analysis since the early 1980s. Born in Iran, he received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Surrey in England. He then completed a visiting fellowship at Harvard University’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies. He joined the East West Center in 1979, where he led the Energy program for two decades. FGE offices are spread around the world in 8 locations with heavy emphasis on Asia and the Middle East.
