Celebrating 50 years

March 17, 2017

Fifty years ago, March 17, 1967, the Dayton Memorial Library was dedicated. The library opened in 1966 and was named The Dayton Memorial Library in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Dayton. Mrs. Dayton’s bequest of $850,000 to the university vitalized a 3-year fund drive begun in 1962 by Fr. Ryan to build a science building and a library, and was the largest bequest at that time in the history of Regis. Archbishop Urban J. Vehr officiated at the dedication.
