"A Lighthouse for All Who Seek a Better Way and a Citadel for Every Defender of Righteousness. . . . The Most Vital Building. . . . This library then, is an honored gift to faculty as well as to students, and will stand ever on this campus as the central deep from which all may draw wisdom. It may well be that the library, while always in the past above fad and fashion in educational methodology, will be even more vital in the teaching program of the University of the future which as never before must foster individualized research."

Address by Dr. Vernon B. Richardson, '35, pastor, University Baptist Church, Baltimore, at the dedication of the Frederic William Boatwright Memorial Library in Cannon Memorial Chapel, November 1, 1955.
