Don Meredith retired from the Harding School of Theology (HST) in Memphis, Tennessee, on August 31, 2017.
Don served at the L.M. Graves Memorial Library at HST for 49 years. He first began in 1968 and then was promoted to Head Librarian in 1983. He was the second professional librarian at the library.
Don received a BA in Biblical Languages at Harding College, MTh from Harding Graduate School of Religion, and MLIS at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Bob Turner, Circulation Librarian, said, “He has been an exemplary leader, mentor, and friend to many of us. He will maintain an office in the library where he will continue his research projects, primarily on the history of the Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement.”
The library celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2014 and they created a video which presents a clear view of Don’s influence and his lasting legacy at HST.
Don has been a member of ATLA since 1968, where he has participated in several Interest Groups, including Public Services and College and University. He has also participated in the Campbell-Stone Denominational Group and has attended several Annual Conferences. As a long-time valued member, we are pleased to offer him Lifetime Member status.
Please join us in congratulating Don on his retirement in the comments below. Also, Bob has extended an invitation to any of those who are in the Memphis area to join Don’s celebration on September 21.
