Here are some recent music titles that have been purchased with an endowed fund that was established in honor of John N. Pierce ’54 (see history of the fund, below). Click on an image to see its Barton catalog record:
History of the Pierce fund: In 1987, Mrs. Alice Pierce established an endowed fund in honor of her late husband, John N. Pierce ’54. Arnold (’57) and Margit Orange and other donors have contributed generously to the fund. Mr. Pierce spent many hours in the Music Library between classes, and this is a particularly meaningful way for his family and friends to honor his memory. The income from the fund was first used to purchase materials in early music and blues; in 2007 the scope was expanded to include jazz and folk.
The Lewis Music Library is located in Bldg.14E-109 and library hours are posted on the web.
