Found in the Shuffle: John W. Davis Photo

The photo featured today, is an undated studio portrait of alumnus and (briefly) professor John W. Davis.  The dedication in Davis’ hand on the mat is to long-time W&L university librarian, Annie Jo White. Miss White was the founder of the Fancy Dress Ball, landlord to Lewis F. Powell, Jr., and is the namesake of Annie, the online catalog of W&L libraries.

This is the first in a series of featured items that came to the archives in the frenzied clearing of offices for this summer HVAC rennovation.
