The Washington and Lee University Library staff, as well as other members of the Washington and Lee and Lexington communities, mourn the loss of former University Librarian Barbara Brown, who passed away on Saturday 27 August.
Barbara had been associated with libraries at Washington and Lee since the 1970’s — since before there was a Leyburn Library or Telford Science Library — and had a tremendously positive effect on both people and institutions at W&L.
She was delightfully thoughtful and unfailingly kind as a colleague, supervisor, and friend. Active in both the professional world and in the local community, Barbara will be missed by friends all across the country.
Her career is summarized in this W&L news release.
