On Tuesday, Feb. 5 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. the staff of the USU Eastern Library & Learning Commons invite you to join them for cake as they celebrate the 50th ‘birthday’ of their building.
The building was dedicated on Feb. 5, 1969. The library, which cost $525,000. to build, was filled with people during the program, which included a faculty procession, acknowledgment of guests by CEU Director Dr. John Tucker, an address by Utah Governor Calvin Rampton and the presentation of an honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letter by University of Utah President Dr. James Fletcher to noted newspaperman Lee Hills, a former Price resident and past publisher of the News-Advocate. Dr. Hills then delivered the dedicatory address. CEU was under the governance of the University of Utah at the time and the honorary degree was the first ever bestowed at a branch of that institution.
