Board of Directors

Along our spiral staircase you'll find photos of past presidents* of the Mercantile Library Board of Directors.

Our first woman board president was Carol Allgood, elected in 1983 for a two-year term, after joining the Library’s Board of Directors in 1969. Until her death in 2019, she was also our longest tenured member, having joined the library in 1957.


*Except the one with the violin. That’s Norwegian composer & violinist Ole Bull. We’re not sure why it isn’t really Joseph Cox, Jr.
