William R. Plum

William R. Plum was an honorary Colonel of the Civil War who lived on Park Avenue in Lombard IL. When he died he left his house, books, and money for a public library. He did not want the library to be named after him, but after his wife Helen Maria Plum. Before the new two story building was built for the library in 1963, the library was located in his house since in 1928.
