May 7, 1964 - Memorial Library Dedicated

The Memorial Library opened earlier in the school year and today would be formally dedicated. In a campus wide ceremony, Cardinal Eugene Tisserant, Dean of the College of Cardinals, celebrated the Pontifical Mass. Also in attendance were Albert Cardinal Meyer of Chicago and Joseph Cardinal Ritter of St. Louis. Representatives from many American colleges and universities were in attendance as well, with the President of Columbia University, Grayson Kirk, addressing the crowd.
