“Ye Editor” Honored at U of L Library
George T. McWhorter, Curator of the Edgar Rice Burroughs Memorial Collection at the University of Louisville, was honored at a reception in the Ekstrom Library on August 28. 

"Since the beginning of his 36-year career with University of Louisville, Professor George T. McWhorter has enriched the university with his thoughtful and significant gifts," said Cheryl Crane, Development Director, University of Louisville Libraries, at the ceremony. 

Two original Arthur Rackham items were presented to the library in his honor. The Rackham collection is one of several that George has supported and underwritten over his 36 years at U of L. (“He already has everything Burroughs,” joked Special Collections Head Delinda Buie.)
