John was a strong supporter of the Friends of Morley Library.
09/01/2017

John was a strong supporter of the Friends of Morley Library.

The Morley Library community mourns the loss of John R. Gardner, who began his term as the library's Director in 1978 and retired in 1994. In addition to his love for books and his dedication to Morley, John was known for his fair-mindedness, his sense of humor, and his love of travel, especially to some of the most remote destinations in the world. He traveled to all 7 continents and more than 100 countries, and one of his favorite places was Tristan da Cunha, a small isolated island in the South Atlantic Ocean that had captured his imagination. John’s mother, one brother, two sisters, and a sister-in-law were all librarians, so John once jokingly wrote that he “must have been destined, or doomed, to be a librarian.” We will not forget John and his zest for life.
