In Memoriam: Dr. Danny Wallace, MA-LS, 1977

After graduating with his Master of Arts in Library Science in 1977, he earned his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and served as a professor of library and information science at Louisiana State University, Indiana University, Kent State University, University of Oklahoma, and University of Alabama.

We extend deep sympathies to Dr. Wallace’s family and friends.
