Early life[edit] She was born Margaret Buck in Spokane, Washington, to Nathan K. Buck, an attorney, and Adda M. Buck (née Morie).[4][5][6][7] In 1929, Herrick graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in library science.[8]


Career[edit] In 1929, Herrick became head librarian at the Yakima Public LIbrary in Yakima, Washington. She moved to Hollywood, California, with her husband and became the Academy's first librarian. She served in that capacity until 1943, during the war, when she became the interim executive director of the Academy, replacing her husband.[9] In 1945, she was offered the Executive Director position permanently and held that position until her retirement in January 1971.[10] In the mid-1960s, Herrick went on international tours to promote the 10th anniversary of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.[11] Between 1963 and 1968 she visited many international film institutions.[3] The Academy's extensive library in Beverly Hills, California, of material on films is named in her honor.[12] Oscar moniker[edit] Herrick is generally credited with naming the Academy Award an "Oscar", declaring the statuettes "looked just like my Uncle Oscar".[13] However, others, including Academy President Bette Davis and Hollywood gossip columnist Sidney Skolsky, have claimed they invented the name.[14][15][16] Bette Davis said that the statue reminded her of her husband Harmon Nelson's derrière. Nelson's middle name was Oscar.[17] Though Davis ended up revoking this honor.[18] Columnist Sidney Skolsky, who had a syndicated column called "Tinytypes" for over 50 years,[19] referred to the nickname, "Oscar," in his March 16, 1934, column, which might have been the first time the award was called the Oscar in print.[20]


Personal life[edit] In 1931, Herrick married Donald Gledhill, an assistant to the executive secretary of the Academy.[21] She and Gledhill divorced in 1945. She married Philip A. Herrick in 1946, and continued to use his name professionally following their divorce in 1951.[10] Herrick died at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California, in 1976.[1][2][8]
