Edsel Ford Memorial Library, Hotchkiss School, Lakeville, Connecticut

[LIB11165] The original building was a gift in memory of Edsel Bryant Ford given by his wife, Eleanor Clay Ford, and their three sons: Henry Ford II '36, Benson Ford '38, and William Clay Ford '43. Designed by Henry S. Waterbury of Delano and Aldrich, the Edsel Ford Memorial Library opened in 1952. A major expansion and renovation, increasing the size of the library six times, was completed in 1981 under the direction of architect Evans Woollen '45. The first floor of the library was renovated in 1999 to provide a teaching and reference center combining print, microform, and digital resources. [Website]
