Robert J. Galvin (1938-2020)

“For as long as I can remember I have loved books. I grew up in a house with books. I have many memories of my father sitting in his favorite armchair reading a book. I early got the message that books were important. When Emily Dickinson wrote

There is no Frigate like a Book
to take us Lands away

she could have been talking to me…” – Robert J. Galvin
