Larry Nix, an APRL Trustee from 2007–2013, a former Philatelic Literature Review columnist, and a contributor to this blog, was inducted into the Wisconsin Library Hall of Fame on October 27.
Larry is well-known in the philatelic world, both for his contributions to the APRL and for his collection of “postal librariana,” which is showcased on his Library History Buff website and in several award-winning exhibits. Larry even did a single-frame exhibit on the APRL.
He is perhaps even better known in the library world. From 1983 until his retirement, he served as director of Wisconsin’s Public Library Development Team. He has also been active in the American Library Association and is respected internationally for his knowledge of library history.
