After the war, she returned to libraries and became the cataloger for Columbia University before returning to Smith in 1926 as the Curator of Books and Photographs for the Art Department. Baum retired in 1959 but continued to work various volunteer positions at Cooley Dickinson Hospital until her death in 1989.
