This online-only exhibition commemorates the 35th anniversary of the Lauinger Library at Georgetown University. Complete with beautiful photographs and informative annotations, the site presents a chronological history of an important architectural landmark. Entries include the baseball field where the library would eventually be constructed, a number of provisional plans for the building, photos of the construction process, and popular press reviews of the finished product. Of special interest is the 1970 press release announcing that the library would be named for Joseph Mark Lauinger, an alumnus killed in the Vietnam War.
