This week we learned that Paul Burgess, an education major and great friend of the library, passed away on Sunday.

During his time at Southwestern, Paul could often be found in the SLC. As a non-traditional student, Paul brought a unique perspective to campus, both in and out of the classroom.

Last fall, Paul interviewed Dave Eggers for the Megaphone during his Writer’s Voice visit. This year, Paul was a member of the Writer’s Voice Advisory Group, and had a role in selecting an author for next year’s Writer’s Voice.

Paul will be missed by both the librarians and library staff he interacted with during his time at Southwestern.
