Lucy Blundon, center, and her husband, Montague, visited the Mercer Library on the Prince William Campus last week. Blundon is a descendant of John Mercer, George Mason’s uncle and guardian. History recounts that Mercer’s personal library was the largest and best of its era in Virginia. Giving the couple a tour of the library is Mary Berkebile, circulation supervisor.
