Lecture: Marcia, The Friendly Ghost!

As much as we tease Marcia by dressing her up for the holidays, we have the utmost respect and admiration for what she did during her 50 year tenure at MedChi. In addition to creating the Medical Librarians Association, she was responsible for managing the building of our 1909 building, enlarging our library from 7,000 to 65,000 books and much more that we don’t know about.

We are hosting a lecture on Marcia’s academic and professional background, as well as her current status as ghost in residence at MedChi. Additionally, an MFA student at MICA will be showing some of her artwork featuring Marcia.

  1. Hello Meg, Most of the huge research libraries we know today were substantially built up in the early 20th century. The librarians who were responsible for forming and accessing these collections deserve much more credit than their prim stereotype allows. No wonder Marcia is reluctant to relinquish control over her library!
