David Gracy Death – Obituary | Dead – Passed Away

David Gracy Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished David Gracy.

We are saddened at the passing of archivist, teacher, and information champion Dr. David Gracy. Dr. Gracy was a former State Archivist of Texas. One of the greats, he will be sorely missed.

I ultimately went to Emporia State for library school ($) but I REALLY wanted to go to UT Austin in no small part bc of David Gracy. I only met him a few times but could tell how supportive he was of students/early career folks, which we need all we can get in archives. RIP, sir.

Learned from the SGA list that the archives world has lost a legend. Dr David Gracy passed away yesterday. He was the person who convinced me that I – someone with a public relations background – needed to be an archivist (and specifically, one who went to Texas).

RIP Dr. David B. Gracy, II. I loved Dr. Gracy’s speech on the first day of library school. He inspired so many. My favorite Gracy-ism that I still use is “Between you, me, and the fence post.” I loved how he said, Archiiiives!” in a hushed and conspiratorial voice. RIP to an icon

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.
