Description To find funding when money was scarce, Library Director Priscilla M. Mayden worked with Dean Kenneth Castleton to secure private and federal funding to start the project. Following up on a golf course conversation that Dean Castleton had with his friend and prominent Ogden citizen Spencer S. Eccles, he and Utah businessman Reed Brinton made a house call to Eccles. As a result, Eccles and his family carried the library to the finish line with $250,000 in funding. Finally, on October 4, 1971, the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library was dedicated.
