Nemoy (1901-1997) was born in Balta, Russia, studied languages in Odessa, and emigrated to the US in 1923, receiving a Ph. D from Yale in 1929. He was a librarian both in Russia and In the Unites States. Before emigrating, he worked at the Society for the Propagation of Knowledge in Odessa, the Academic Library of Odessa, and the University Library of Lvov, Poland. He began his career at Yale in 1923, eventually becoming the first curator of Hebrew and Arabic literature at the Sterling Memorial Library, and overseeing the acquisitions of Alexander Kohut Memorial Collection of Judaica and the Sholem Asch Collection. Nemoy's scholarly activities were mainly devoted to research on the history of the Karaites, including important translations and editions of Arabic, Hebrew, and Aramaic literature.
