Barr Library recognized

-A A +A

Dear Mr. Wicker:

This letter is to commend the work of Mr. Michael Steinmacher, the director of the Barrr Memorial Library.

I am Gen. Barr’s son-in-law and have worked with Mr. Steinmacher over the past years to provide details of Gen. Barr’s life. Mr Steinmacher has worked tirelessly to show Gen. Barr as more than some old general with a building named after him. He has collected and developed information to humanize the general. This will enable young soldiers visiting the library to learn about its namesake. Throughout this period he has worked in a highly professional manner with me and one of Gen. Barr’s granddaughters.

Please pass on to Mr. Steinmacher our sincere thanks for his great work.
