Gara books donated to library


Following the recent death of Wilmington College emeritus professor of history Larry Gara, the Wilmington Public Library set up this display of his books. The books were donated to the library by Gara’s son Brian, and are available for library patrons to borrow. The titles of the six books are “The Liberty Line: The Legend of the Underground Railroad”, “The Presidency of Franklin Pierce”, “A Short History of Wisconsin”, “Westernized Yankee: The Story of Cyrus Woodman”, “The Baby Dodds Story: As Told to Larry Gara”, and “A Few Small Candles: War Resisters of World War II Tell Their Stories” which he and his wife Lenna Mae co-edited. Larry Gara, who remained in Wilmington after retiring from the college, is probably best known among Clinton Countians as a peace activist who led area peace vigils and non-violent demonstrations.
