On Friday August 9th, colleagues, friends, and family came together to celebrate the retirement of Dr. David Gillespie, Library Director of the Lewis J. Ort Library. Dr. Gillespie began his career as Library Director in 1984. Dr. Gillespie was instrumental in having the library named after Lewis J. Ort, a principal benefactor for the library. In addition, he was responsible for establishing the J. Glenn Beall Archives which houses the George A. Meyers Collection and the William P. Price Railroad Collection.
The library staff wishes to thank Dr. Gillespie for his many years of dedicated service to the library and to FSU.
