I learned today that Lynn Kristianson passed away earlier this week. For years, she was my go-to person for research at the Arlington Public Library. Over the course of several projects, she fielded my never-ending requests for books and articles, going out of her way to track down the most obscure materials and always taking time to ask about my progress. In addition to her work at the library, Lynn developed perennial gardens at multiple sites in Arlington and was an avid cyclist. My thoughts go out to her family. I will miss her.
