Dead Presidential Wives Head up Fake Historical Society

This weird little blurb showed up in Library Journal's People section:

"Varina Howell Davis and Mary Todd Lincoln were named joint Directors, John Brown Historical Center and Library, Harpers Ferry, WV."

Kudos to Nann Blaine Hilyard for being such a diligent reader.

Dead Presidential Wives--correction from LJ

The Nov. 15th People listing announcing Varina Howell Davis & Mary Todd Lincoln as joint directors of the John Brown Historical Center and Library, Harpers Ferry, WV, was a bogus submission. LJ apologizes for the error. The online listing has been deleted and a correction will be included in the next print edition of LJ.LJ editors
