Ruth McEvoy
1906 – 2003

Ruth McEvoy received her Masters Degree from Columbia University and worked 13 years at the Brooklyn Public Library before relocating to Batavia in 1946. She was employed as an assistant to the director of the Richmond Memorial Library and was instrumental in the development of a checkout system for books. She was appointed as the library director in 1963 and retired in 1971. After her retirement, she served as the Batavia City Historian and through her research wrote the History of the City of Batavia which was published in 1993. Ruth spent years indexing the Daily Newspapers [1878 through February 2001] and in 2002 presented her collection of 35 shoe boxes filled with subject cards to the Genesee County History Department.

In 2004 Jim Carr, Genesee County History Department volunteer through the R.S.V. P. program, began typing Ruth McEvoy’s subject cards. Numerous hours later the History Department was able to provide to the public this wealth of information and local history.
