Commemorative edition / Gedenkuitgawe Pieter Egbert Westra

Frank R. Bradlow


During the 50 years I have been associated with the South African Library, my greatest privilege has been to become friendly
with the three Directors with whom I have worked. Each of these Directors had his own style, and impressed his own stamp on
the affairs of the Library, without in any way harming the magnificent traditions of this superb institution. The purpose of this
tribute is not to tell the story of the Library and its triumphs and tribulations, or the history of Piet Westra's predecessors, but to
pay a tribute to 'a captain who managed to keep the galleon afloat despite st9rms and adverse winds on its long voyage to its
present situation'.
