Passing of Former AAHSL Director
It is with a sad heart that I notify you of the loss of a former colleague, Spencer Marsh, on March 10 in Calverton, NY. Spencer was the Director of the Health Sciences Library at Stony Brook University from 1996 until his retirement in 2008. During his time at Stony Brook, Spencer helped to shape the Library’s physical footprint, expand its technological capabilities, and transition its journal collection to digital formats.
Prior to arriving at Stony Brook, he served as the Director of the Biomedical Library at the University of South Alabama, Mobile, and the Assistant Director at the UT Southwestern Medical Library in Dallas.
His dry wit, appreciation of music, and love of sharing a gourmet meal and a good glass of red wine will be truly missed. He loved all things Italian and Italy was his country of choice to visit having made more than 50 trips with friends in tow!
No plans have been announced at this time. A memorial will be held at a later date.
Condolences may be sent to Jerry Marsh (brother) at: firstname.lastname@example.org
