Honoring Kathryn Mattox

Kathryn Mattox served as Librarian for Stites and Harbison in Lexington, KY from 1987 until her death in 2005. She facilitated the library's move into the firm's current space. She loved her job and especially enjoyed attending the AALL Annual Meeting. In addition to naming their library the Kathryn Mattox Law Library, Stites and Harbison contributed (along with the Lexington Association of Law Libraries, LEXIS, and WESTLAW) to fund an all expenses paid scholarship to allow a law firm librarian to attend the 2006 Annual Meeting. The funding groups asked the SEAALL Scholarship Committee to handle the award process.

The Scholarship Committee selected Elizabeth Cavendish of Adams and Reese, LLP in New Orleans, LA as the recipient of the Kathryn Mattox Scholarship. Those who knew Kathryn say that she would be so pleased with this selection as she loved New Orleans and loved a party; she and her husband visited there often.

The SEAALL Scholarship Committee would like to thank Stites and Harbison, the Lexington Association of Law Libraries, LEXIS, and WESTLAW for their generous gifts in honor of Kathryn Mattox.
