Throwback Thursday: Remembering Mary Ann Griffin, DA

Mary Ann Griffin

Has it really been 30 years since Mary Ann Griffin, DA, first took on the position of library director? Dr. Griffin, whose life and career were cut short in 1995 and for whom the library’s Griffin Room is named, made a lasting impression on the staff who worked with her and on colleagues across campus.

As Rev. Dennis Gallagher, OSA, PhD, said in a previously published blog, “Dr. Griffin always kept [the Beatitudes] of Jesus Christ before her as her own personal ‘plan of action.’” Fr. Gallagher honored Dr. Griffin as “a dreamer” and “a seeker of truth,” like St. Augustine.

    Thank you for remembering MaryAnn. Falvey and Villanova made up the center of her life at the time of her death. She would be very pleased had she known she would be remembered for so long.
