Frank Pacy

Frank Pacy A FEW weeks ago Frank Pacy, on receiving an armchair as a farewell gift, said he would take it home, sit in it, and write a book, Fifty Years as a Librarian. So I am told but after that he was not granted fifty days and as he cared nothing for leisure, and hated the prospect of it, on that score we can congratulate him. Most of us in using phrases to describe an ordinary man do so merely to cover our inability to comprehend such a complexity but Pacy was not an ordinary man he was a personality distinct, but multiple, of extraordinary charm, unusual ability, remarkable elusiveness. In writing a note to his memory I am conscious of shortcomings I was never his intimate he very frequently disapproved of me, and said so but I had, like many other men, constant touch with him for over twenty years. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

A FEW weeks ago Frank Pacy, on receiving an armchair as a farewell gift, said he would take it home, sit in it, and write a book, Fifty Years as a Librarian. So I am told but after that he was not granted fifty days and as he cared nothing for leisure, and hated the prospect of it, on that score we can congratulate him. Most of us in using phrases to describe an ordinary man do so merely to cover our inability to comprehend such a complexity but Pacy was not an ordinary man he was a personality distinct, but multiple, of extraordinary charm, unusual ability, remarkable elusiveness. In writing a note to his memory I am conscious of shortcomings I was never his intimate he very frequently disapproved of me, and said so but I had, like many other men, constant touch with him for over twenty years.
