Frank Stamato, photographer. Van Pelt Library construction, (1962).
October 22, 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the dedication of the Charles Patterson Van Pelt Library. The Dietrich wing was added in 1966. Today, Van Pelt-Dietrich Library is still the central Penn library, and ongoing renovations have made it a center of learning, research, and teaching. To celebrate the occasion, this small exhibition features photographs of the building's construction, dedication, and early interior.
