Obituary Note: Marian Ranck Gerhart

Marian Ranck Gerhart

Former Morristown & Morris Township Library Director Marian Ranck Gerhart passed away on Nov. 25 at the age of 99.

 A wonderful force of knowledge and inspiration, she trained many of the library staff during her 20 years as director from 1966-1986 and was instrumental in creating the joint municipal library we have today and the Morris Union Federation, one of the first library consortiums in the state. A luminary at our institution, Marian was eager to train the next generation of librarians here in Morristown and then in retirement went on to form a library at the Willow Grove Retirement community where she lived.
