“I feel passionately about providing the world with access to more of humanity’s knowledge, and I believe that this career path is a good way to further that goal,” said Mr. Purdy in his award application. David is the 2014 Margaret Williams Trust Fund Award Winner, presented by Memorial University to applicants seeking funding for library‐related projects or assistance in pursuing graduate studies in librarianship, archival studies, or teacher librarianship.
