The Seattle Times reports on the passing of Faye Allen, mother of Paul Allen:

Talk to just about anyone who knew Faye Allen, and they’ll invariably mention books. She read them feverishly; she collected them by the thousands; she talked about them with anyone who would listen; and ultimately, she helped create an everlasting gift of books for the people of Seattle.

A life-long champion of the library and reading, she leaves the Seattle Public Library Foundation some $22.5 million. In turn SPL will institute a Faye Allen Memorial Fund. Check-out the link for more information.
