The Mary Evelyn Blagg-Huey Library

What's in a name? Part III

Do you ever wonder about the people for whom buildings on TWU campuses are named?

Okay, this is an easy one.

Many of you knew — or knew of — Mary Evelyn Blagg-Huey, TWU's first female president, who passed away June 27, 2017. One of her primary goals as president was providing a new library for students and faculty. The building, completed in January 1986 on the old “dorm row” site, was named in her honor.
