Those who knew Charles Connor understood his passion for history.
“He was just a walking history book,’’ said longtime friend Portia Petties. “He loved history and if you talked to him, you knew he had really experienced life.’’
Connor, who co-founded the Emma Reno Connor Black History Gallery in Elizabethtown with his late wife, Emma, died Monday at his home. He was 93.
