More than 350 members and guests of the Friends of the Bancroft Library attending the annual meeting in 1965 which marked the formal retirement of George P. Hammond. Among the festivities were a special exhibition of Hammond publications and honors; a retrospective show of outstanding accessions acquired during his directorship; the presentation of Dr. Hammond's portrait, painted by Maynard Dixon Stewart, and a surprise Festschrift to mark the occasion: GPH: An Informal Record of George P. Hammond and His Era in the Bancroft Library. Seen here are Susanna Dakin, presiding, with (seated left to right) J. S. Holliday, Robert H. Becker, George P. Hammond, and Ray Allen Billington.
