The Passing of John Godfrey Morris

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.
