Peggy Ayers King

Peggy King served as Legislative Research Commission Librarian from 1976 to 1992. She was an exceptional person, whose intelligence, kindness, shyness, and laughter drew people to her. She encouraged and inspired colleagues, legislators, and friends alike.

Peggy deeply loved nature and nature’s God and was a vital member of her community. Of Peggy’s many gifts, perhaps her greatest was to value all who came within her ken. 

Ancient religion and modern science agree:
we are here to give praise. --John Updike
