The Library learned of the passing of John Godfrey Morris at 100 two weeks ago. He had spoken at the Library many times, and was  a good friend to this institution and many of its members. One of them, Meredith Mullins, wrote a tribute to him (which includes her own photos of John at the Library) which can be read here:

Below is his The New York Times' obituary, including a video-interview he did specifically for inclusion with it. What an incredible life John lived.
