My apologies to Barbara Immroth that she is being chastised for a problem I caused. Bohdan gave me the opportunity to write books for Libraries Unlimited for many, many years. I learned late at night on Monday with an early morning flight to a conference on the east coast (always a challenge when you live on the west coast, that Bohdan had passed away. I called Barbara because I was worried about an announcement and about a memorial resolution for Dr. Wynar. I felt it was important for colleagues who had known Bohdan to know of his passing.
ABC-CLIO really had no connection with Dr. Wynar. He sold Libraries Unlimited to Greenwood who was bought by another company and finally sold to ABC-CLIO. They have really no connection with Dr. Wynar at all.
I do apologize, and I will research Dr. Wynar and do a much longer biography for him and see that a memorial resolution is written for ALA Council. I would ask that anyone at ALISE who knew him better than I who could help me with this to contact me as soon as possible.
