On Dec. 6, more than 250 well-wishers gathered at the Law School to welcome, as Law School Dean Taylor Reveley told the assemblage, “our marvelous new Wolf Law Library … into the ‘family’ of the country’s oldest law school.”
College President Gene R. Nichol, College Rector Michael Powell, and members of the William and Mary Board of Visitors joined the Law School community for the celebration.
The new library was completed over the summer, on schedule and slightly under its budget. During the two-year construction phase, the 1980 facility underwent a floor-to-ceiling renovation and new space was added. The new library totals 57,100 net square feet, a 56 percent increase in size from the old library. The project was the beneficiary of a naming gift from Hank and Dixie Wolf. Hank Wolf, an alumnus of the College and the Law School, serves as vice rector of the College’s Board of Visitors. He retired earlier this year as vice chairman and chief financial officer of the Norfolk Southern Corporation.
