Did You Know?
Scofield Hall, home to the University's first library, is the former residence of Kansas City-Journal Post newspaper publisher Walter S. Dickey. After his death in 1931, the Dickey mansion was purchased and donated to the University by William Volker. Six years later, Volker anonymously purchased and donated the private library of Robert M. Snyder Jr., which now serves as the foundation collection at the LaBudde Special Collections Department, Miller Nichols Library.
