Remembering Marnie Furbush

May 24, 2018
by Elizabeth A Fischbach

With deep sadness, I note the passing on May 17, 2018, of Marnie Furbush, a remarkable friend and ally of Stanford Libraries and Special Collections over many years. Staff who’ve worked in Green Library for a long time may remember her gracious ways, keen intellect, and generosity. Marnie befriended everyone whose path she crossed, from the mail room to the directors’ office.
