Liberty Hall GM Dies

Tim Griffith, the longtime manager of Lawrence, Kan.’s Liberty Hall, died from heart failure at his home November 10th.

Griffith, 50, began working at the venue in the early 1970s when it was called Lawrence Opera House and went on to mentor many employees.

City commissioners reportedly gave tentative approval to a plan that would allow friends and co-workers of Griffith to cast the manager’s boot prints in bronze on the sidewalk in front of Liberty Hall.

Griffith – who lived in Lawrence all of his adult life – was said to have walked to work for the last 30 years.
