In Memoriam: Gaylor F. Callahan

Gaylor F. Callahan
Gaylor F. Callahan, University Libraries, died suddenly on August 3, 2017.  Gaylor received her BA (1974) and MA (1977) in English and her MLIS (1990) from UNCG.  She also pursued graduate studies at Duke University.  Most of her career was devoted to the Libraries. She worked in Circulation and Reserves while a student and after graduating worked in the Serials Department.

Since 1984 Gaylor served as the Interlibrary Loan Borrower and helped countless researchers across campus obtain the materials they needed to complete their projects successfully.  If you look at the acknowledgments in many UNCG faculty publications you will see their gratitude for Gaylor’s invaluable assistance.  Gaylor also taught English at Elon University, UNCG and Duke.  It is hard to imagine Jackson Library without Gaylor and she will be greatly missed.
