Sad to hear the news of the passing of Marty Blackman. I worked at Gaylord Brothers then Polaris Library Systems during Marty's ownership and he was a great man to work for. He was a self made man and one of the best owners of a company I've ever worked for! He and the Bergreen family shared the vision of Polaris employees. Even though they didn't get the returns they wanted for a few years they allowed Polaris to be built from the ground up and together all my former colleagues and Marty built a great library automation system that offered the best in customer care. Marty was 93 years old and I will always remember him as a gentleman and a great man. It was pointed out to several of my former colleagues that during Marty's ownership we didn't have jobs or careers but callings that we were fortunate enough to get paid to do. He will be missed!
