Goodbye and Thank You Anne Caudill
Most people know the name Harry Caudill; our Whitesburg branch is named for him. He was a local lawyer and author who campaigned for a First Class library in Whitesburg. Many people don't realize that Anne Caudill put just as much into this library as Harry. She organized people, collected books and started the Historical Society. She often donated money and books to this library system and the one in New Albany, Indiana, where she lived the last few years.
She wrote me letters and called to make sure we (the building and people of the library) were okay.
Every time I talked to her, she reminded me that she was doing pretty good for a lady in her 90s. I had the pleasure of meeting her in-person last year. Anne Caudill was amazing and she will be missed.
(This portrait of Anne Caudill hangs above the piano in the HMC meeting room.)
