In honor of National Library Week, today’s Photo of the Week showcases Campbell University’s library in 1966, then housed in Carrie Rich Memorial Hall. At the time, the library consisted of two large reading rooms, book stacks and office space for library personnel. In the 1970s, it had enough space to accommodate 2,500 students and hold more than 150,000 volumes of print collections.
The late D. Rich, a former secretary-treasurer of the Reynolds Tobacco Co., gave money for the building of a library in memory of his first wife, Carrie Rich. He was told $25,000 would be needed to build it. But if he was going to give money to the school for a memorial for his first wife, he said wanted the building to be “flawless and beautiful as was the character of the woman in whose memory it was given.”
He ended up giving more than $60,000 to build the library, which was named in his first wife’s honor.
