Gloria Thompson, or “Glo” as she is affectionately known, retired as Manager of Krasker Film/Video Services this past September, ending a distinguished 39-year career with Boston University. A tireless advocate of film preservation, and beloved by students and faculty alike, she will be greatly missed.
Before leaving, she oversaw the monumental task of moving Krasker’s facility (and its approximately 19,000 titles!) from 985 Commonwealth Avenue to Mugar Library, located at 771 Commonwealth Avenue. Assoc. Univ. Librarian Tom Casserly takes up the rod from Thompson as the new Manager of Krasker Film/Video Services. Rest assured, Casserly and the entire Krasker Team vow to uphold Gloria Thompson’s legacy of doing one’s utmost to serve the educational media needs of the BU community!
Best wishes Glo on a happy retirement!
