1979 Merle Kelce Library, University of TAMPA FL

"Main facade of the library shows modified Moorish motif that compliments the distinctive architecture of Henry B. Plant Hall."

The University of Tampa's library opened Oct. 19, 1969, and was originally named in honor of the late St. Louis industrialist, Merl Kelce, whose donation made the construction possible. It was re-named the Macdonald-Kelce Library in 1999 because of the generosity of the Macdonald Family Foundation whose contribution will transform the facility into a state-of-the-art information resource center. The Macdonald-Kelce Library is part of the Tampa Bay Library Consortium. [SOURCE]
