Annual Meeting Scheduled for Sunday, October 16th
The Wake Forest College Birthplace Society will hold this year’s annual meeting from 3:00-5:00 pm on Sunday, October 16, 2016 at the Wake Forest Historical Museum. The keynote speaker is Tim Pyatt, the recently appointed Dean of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library.
A native of North Carolina, Pyatt moved into his new role at Wake Forest University in August 2015 and he brings to the job a wealth of experience. Pyatt previously served as university archivist at Duke University’s Perkins Library, as the director of the Southern Historical Collection and curator of manuscripts at UNC Chapel Hill, and immediately prior to his arrival in Winston-Salem, he helmed the Eberly Family Special Collections Library at Pennsylvania State University.
Wake Forest University Provost Rogan Kersh has said of Pyatt, “We are delighted to give this North Carolina native the opportunity to come home and use his extensive experience to continue the innovative and creative practices characterizing the Z. Smith Reynolds Library.”
We hope you plan to attend this event and also will consider continuing your support of the Wake Forest College Birthplace Society. If you already are part of the Society, now is the time to renew for the 2016-17 membership year. If you are interested in joining, memberships are available at this link.
