Dr Clifford Tillman, Chair of the Armstrong Library Board of Trustees and member for 46 years, died on Wednesday, November 11, 2009 at the age of 89. He will be sorely missed by all of us at the Library. (See obituary from the Natchez Democrat.)
We are pleased that his family asked that donations in his memory be made to the Friends of the Armstrong Library. These funds were used to furnish and renovate the Periodical Room, which has been renamed the Dr Clifford Tillman Memorial Reading Room. The pictures are from the dedication of the room, which was held on May 11, 2010. Click on any picture to see larger pictures and captions.
