ABOUT THIS BOOK
Published to commemorate the Deering Library’ s 75th anniversary, this book explores the Deering and McCormick families, who funded the project; the building’ s distinctive Collegiate Gothic architecture; its lore as a campus institution; and its role in the evolution of Northwestern University Library into one of the country’ s most prominent research libraries. Richly illustrated, it is both an authoritative account of a landmark library and a rich keepsake for Northwestern alumni.
