Abernethy/Ogburn Endowment

The purpose of the Endowment is to preserve and make Libraries collections accessible through binding, repair, digitization, microfilming, and cataloging.

Joyce Ogburn, former Associate Director of the University of Washington Libraries, created this endowment for her father, Thomas Ogburn and two very influential women in her life: her mother, Dorothy Ogburn, and second cousin, Nettie Grace Abernethy. Joyce's career and personal interests show the influence of these two women: librarianship, anthropology, music and the humane treatment of animals.
