Biography
  • The first library building on the Kansas State Normal School campus was the Kellogg Library built in 1903. Located in the southwest corner of campus, the library was constructed using bricks and terra cotta trimming. The Kellogg Library reached full capacity by 1930. In addition there were also structural problems that caused a corner room on the first floor to be condemned. In 1934, part of the library's collection had to be moved across campus and housed in the former cafeteria. This created the first Library Annex. Plans for a new library began in 1941 but were halted by the United States entering World War II. Following the war a new concept was created and groundbreaking on the William Allen White Library occurred in February of 1950. It was named for Emporia, Kansas, resident William Allen White who was a distinguished journalist and owner of the Emporia Gazette. The building's cornerstone was laid on October 20, 1950, and the building was dedicated by the Honorable Edward F. Arn, Governor of Kansas, in ceremonies held April 21-22, 1952. The dedication involved events across campus which included speakers who were friends, family, and associates of William Allen White. The new building was constructed using red brick. In 1971 the need for more space resulted in the building of an addition to the library which doubled the building's capacity. In 1995 an electronic classroom with 22 computers for classroom and student use was created on the second floor. In 2002 the first floor lobby was remodeled and a coffee shop added. The Mary White Room was dismantled in 2007 and that space remodeled for Emporia State University Archives' offices, reading room, and processing room. In 2008 the first floor was renovated and compact shelving and study rooms were added, followed by the second floor administration offices and Technical Services spaces renovations in 2009. The following year, the electronic classroom was moved to the southeast corner of the second floor and in 2011 the lobby area of the first floor was renovated and the front doors were reconfigured.
  • The Kellogg Library building was built in 1903 and was replaced by the William Allen White Memorial Library in 1950. The University Library's stated mission is to support the academic, research, and service programs of the university. To achieve this, over the years the library has consisted of various departments and housed several special collections, including being a partial depository for federal and state documents, the Normaliana Collection which consisted of records relating to the history and functions of the university, materials for English speakers of other languages, and multiple children's book collections. The library has been the home of the William Allen White Children's Book Award, the nation's first book award in which the winners are chosen by the state's schoolchildren, since 1953.
  • The Emporia State University Archives was established in 1987 with the stated mission of collecting, organizing, preserving, and administering the official and unofficial records of the university, including the group of records previously known as the library's Normaliana Collection. Materials which were not created by the university but which support its mission, select records of the College of Emporia, items which document the family and work of William Allen White, rare books, and select materials relating to the publishing and editing of children's books are also maintained.
