BYU TO BREAK GROUND FOR HUNTER LAW LIBRARY

Brigham Young University and LDS authorities will break ground May 1 at 2 p.m. for the Howard W. Hunter Law Library addition to the J. Reuben Clark Law Building.

The three-story Hunter library will be named for the recently deceased 14th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Before President Hunter was called to be an apostle, Oct. 9, 1959, he was a prominent corporate attorney in Southern California."We are highly honored that our law library will bear the name of the only president of the church who was also a lawyer," said BYU President Rex E. Lee. "His life represents the highest standards of professional excellence, integrity and service to the community, values that we attempt to impart to our law students."
