Trenton Boyd, head of the Zalk Veterinary Medical Library, received the 2009 Murray Gottlieb Prize from the Medical Library Association. The Murray Gottlieb Prize is awarded annually for the best unpublished essay on the history of medicine and allied sciences written by a health sciences librarian. The Gottlieb Prize was established in 1956 by Ralph and Jo Grimes of the Old Hickory Bookshop, Brinklow, MD, in order to recognize and stimulate the health sciences librarians’ interest in the history of medicine.
The title of Boyd’s paper is “The Lost History of American Veterinary Medicine: the Need for Preservation.” A version of the paper has already been accepted for presentation at the 2009 ICML/ICAHIS Conference in Brisbane Australia in September of this year.

The University of Missouri will be presenting a one man art show featuring the fine art paintings of Gary St. Ivany of Camdenton, Missouri. The show will be exhibited at the Bookmark Café’ in the Ellis Library on the campus of the University of Missouri in Columbia beginning on January 20 and ending on May 15, 2009.
Gary paints everyday in his studio overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks in Camdenton, Missouri.
His paintings are in numerous private, corporate and public collections and were featured in the
following magazines: Columbia Home and Life, August 2007, Kansas City Home and Garden and
St. Louis Homes and Lifestyles, September 2007, Lake Lifestyles, December 2007. The St. Louis
Post-Dispatch, April 27, 2008 featured the developing art community at the Lake of the Ozarks and
included Gary’s Art in the article. Gary is represented by the Sturdevant Gallery in Osage Beach,
Missouri and Dunklin Street Gallery in Jefferson City, Missouri.
Gary’s paintings are done primarily in oil and acrylic and he stretches his own canvases to fit the unique frames that he selects for his paintings. His style is flowing and varies from impressionistic to abstract, but always with strong design and a vibrant use of color. Gary’s subjects include landscapes, portraits, animals, and abstract designs.
Gary says, “I make my art for the pure pleasure, joy and beauty that art can bring. I want my paintings to evoke an emotion from the viewer.”
