Chairs donated by Paul and Mary Ann FordThanks to the generosity of Paul and Mary Ann Ford, Special Collections can now offer deluxe seating to visitors interested in the Paul and Mary Ann Ford Fly Fishing Collection and other fly fishing resources. In May 2010, the Fords donated funds enabling the purchase of special furniture and in September, two new wing-back chairs, upholstered in fabric with a fly fishing theme, were installed in the corner of our Research Room where fly fishing books and related materials are continuously displayed. We thank the Fords for their continuing support of our efforts to develop a  premiere resource for fly fishing research.
