100th Anniversary of Carnegie Building

The Penn State College of Communications celebrated the 100th anniversary of its current home and Penn State University Park's original library building, the Carnegie Building, on Thursday, Nov. 18. Industrialist Andrew Carnegie donated $150,000 for the construction of Carnegie Library on campus in 1899. The building was completed in 1904 and dedicated on Nov. 18 of that year. Said Doug Anderson, dean of the College of Communications, "Like the Nittany Lion Shrine, Old Main, Beaver Stadium and the Creamery, Carnegie Building is Penn State."
