Jim Toole: Cantankerous Owner of Capitol Hill Books

From a Washington Post obit by Harrison Smith headlined “Jim Toole, cantankerous former owner of Capital Hill Books, dies at 86”:

Jim Toole, a Navy rear admiral who commanded cruisers, destroyers and Mekong River patrol boats before taking charge of Capitol Hill Books, the Washington bookstore that became as well known for his endearingly grumpy presence at the front desk as for its stock of used and rare books, died Nov. 11 — Veterans Day.
