David Pankow, curator of the Melbert B. Cary Jr. Graphic Arts Collection, retired after working at RIT for more than 30 years. Pankow grew the collection from 5,000 books to 40,000 books. He assembled antique printing presses and type that help tell the story of printing. He helped acquire the Bernard C. Middleton collection of books on bookbinding, the most important collection in the United States on the history and practice of bookbinding. And he started the Cary Graphic Arts Press, which opened in 2001.
