After 35 years of dedicated service, Nancy Disher Baird retired on June 30 as Kentucky History Specialist at the Kentucky Library & Museum. A teacher, author, speaker and world traveler, Nancy has published many articles and books (most recently, Josie Underwood’s Civil War Diary), given countless programs and taught thousands of students about the history of Bowling Green, Warren County, Kentucky and the world. Her many achievements include a University award for public service, the Sara Tyler Merit Award, and a stint as acting head of the Department of Library Special Collections. Nancy’s knowledge and skills will be greatly missed, but we hope to see her frequently in the library as she continues work on some unfinished projects. Hail, Queen Nancy!
