Fred M. Bindman, music cataloger and former head of the Music Section, Descriptive Cataloging Division and Special Materials Cataloging Division at the Library of Congress, died at the age of 72 on 1 October 2001, in Washington, D.C. A resident of Silver Spring, Maryland, he was born in New York and grew up in Mattapan, Massachusetts. Bindman graduated from Boston University majoring in musicology and received his M.L.S. degree from Simmons College in Boston. He came to the Library of Congress in 1953 as a music cataloger in the Copyright Office Cataloging Division and was a charter member of the Music Section when it was formed in 1957. He was section head, succeeding Virginia Cunningham, from 1972 to 1991 and ended his career as a cataloging specialist in the Cataloging Policy and Support Office, retiring in 1993 with nearly forty years of service at the library.
