I was 3 when my maternal grandfather died, 40 years ago today. My only memory of Frank H.J. Figge is of him making me laugh.
Thanks to M.J. Tooey, my community colleague at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, I learned that his “happy chuckle” was a hallmark, along with his “true research brain.”
My mother, Barbara Figge Fox, tells the story.
Thank you, M.J., and thank you, all librarians, for the light you bring to the world.
