Celebrating Bill Wallach at the Bentley Library!

On November 30 Bill Wallach will retire from the Bentley Library after
31 years of service as Associate Director of the library. During
those years he has worked with hundreds of colleagues in a number of
projects that have contributed in important ways to the archival
profession. On November 30 we will have a special symposium and
celebration honoring Bill. At that time we would like to present him
with a book of letters of appreciation from all those who have at one
time or another worked with him on various initiatives—or who have
known him in any other capacity. Please send by mail or pdf (e-mail
is OK too) a letter of appreciation on 8 ½ x 11 letterhead to Diane
Hatfield, Bentley Library, Univ. of Michigan, 1150 Beal Ave, Ann Arbor
MI 48109 or to dhatfld@umich.edu. We must have your letter by
September 26 so that it can be assembled with others into a bound
volume to be presented to Bill on November 30. We are sending this
message out on the usual professional lists—however please spread the
word to anyone you know or remember working with Bill over the years.
We want as full a response as possible.
On November 30 we will have a symposium and reception from 3:00-6:00pm
that will honor Bill as well as Jim Craven who will be retiring that
day and Tom Powers who will retire in early January. An invitation can
be found at: http://www.bentley.umich.edu/general/bhlretirement.pdf
In all—we are celebrating 139 years of service to the Library and the
University. So, please respond and please come!
Many thanks —-Fran Blouin
