Richard Landon

Such sad news that Richard Landon, the amazing Director of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, passed away yesterday.  To quote Larry Alford (Chief Librarian of UofT), “his work to build in Fisher one of the world’s greatest rare book libraries is a legacy that will endure for generations to come.”  I also have fond memories of taking his course on rare book librarianship, many years ago.
