TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) —Troy University recently honored a director who has dedicated his career to helping literature thrive.
Director of Wiregrass Archives and History Professor Dr. Martin Olliff has spent countless hours among literature and teaching history to Troy University students. Tuesday, he received the University Libraries’ Book Token Award.
“I was thrilled,” said Dean of University Libraries Christopher Shaffer. “Not only is Martin a colleague, he’s a very good friend. We’ve known each other about 20 years now. Back when I had hair and his wasn’t grey when he met me.”
The Book Token Award is given annually to a faculty member who has shown exceptional support for the University Libraries.
Olliff says his next chapter will most likely be retirement.
