On Sunday, November 11, 2018 the Trible Library dedicated the new Special Collections Room in the Trible Library to the personal book collection of Ross Mackenzie, the longest-serving Editorial Page editor in the history of Richmond newspapers. Mr. Mackenzie is also the only person to serve as editorial editor of both the Richmond News Leader and the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Ross retired in 2006. During his years at the newspapers, Mackenzie wrote more than 20,000 editorials and columns, some of which are digitized on this web site.
