A Gardner-Webb professor is conducting research for a new biography of Fay Lamar Webb Gardner, to whom Gardner-Webb University owes its name and its existence – and he wants the community’s help. The author, GWU communications professor Dr. Joseph Webb, is currently pouring through the extensive and previously unexamined collection of Webb Gardner’s papers in the Dover Memorial Library archives. “Fay lived to be 82, and she was a prolific writer and an extensive record keeper,” Webb said.
