Virginia Garrett (1920-2012)

It is with great sadness that we must announce that Virginia Garrett (1920-2012), a great benefactor to cartographic causes, including SHD (she was a Fellow in 2003), the Texas Map Society, and the cartographic library at the University of Texas at Arlington, died this past Saturday, April 21, 2012, in Fort Worth, Texas.  Garrett was 91 years old, a loving family member, a distinguished map collector, and a philanthropist.
