NEW YORK — Erika Glover, the director and cofounder of The Granger Collection historical picture library in Manhattan, has died. She was 79.
The image library said Monday that Mrs. Glover died of heart and kidney failure Nov. 16 at her home in the two-island nation of St. Kitts and Nevis.
Mrs. Glover and her husband, William, started the collection in 1964 with six file cabinets. It now includes more than 6 million images, including prints, photographs, and color transparencies.
The collection is named for the Rev. James Granger, who wrote an 18th-century history of England that left pages blank so readers could add images.
