Grace Raymond Hebard Wins “Rumble in the Stacks!”

Archives Month 2013 at the American Heritage Center concludes its Rumble in the Stacks with a clear champion!  Librarian and historian, Grace Raymond Hebard, has emerged victorious over the triceratops from King Kong.  While lacking the size, the girth, and the sheer tenacity of the triceratops, Hebard was able to subdue the savage prehistoric beast using her powers of information-seeking.  The triceratops, soothed by information and Hebard’s intrepid scholarly mind, has become as docile as a golden retriever.  Hebard was able to saddle up the triceratops and they rode off into the Wyoming sunset together.  Last seen near Thermopolis, both parties were said to be getting along quite amicably.
