    Frazer G. Poole, 83, who as preservation officer of the Library
    of Congress led the first comprehensive effort there to conserve
    historic items, died of renal failure Feb. 3 at his home in the
    Mount Vernon area of Alexandria. He had cancer.

    Mr. Poole was given the Distinguished Service Award of the
    library when he retired in 1978. He was cited for establishing
    an international model for preservation of important materials.

    He also was involved in the interior design of the library's
    annex, the James Madison Memorial Building.
