Dewey was born in Adams Center in Jefferson County, New York. He attended Amherst College, and graduated in 1874 with a bachelor’s degree. He received a master’s degree from Amherst in 1877.

Dewey is considered to be the pioneer of American librarianship. He is best known for the decimal classification system that is used in most public and school libraries, but the decimal system was just one of a long list of innovations, among them the idea of the state library as the agency best suited to see to the development of school and public library services within a state. Dewey is also known for the creation of hanging vertical files, which first premiered at the Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago.
