- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
The Professor Ernst H. Feilchenfeld Memorial Book Endowment Fund was created in the 1970s in memory of Dr. Feilchenfeld, who died in 1956. It is used for foreign service acquisitions.
Dr. Feilchenfeld was born in Berlin, and studied at the university there and at the London School of Economics. He was Professor of International Organizations and Law at Georgetown University and director of the Institute of World Polity. He also taught at Harvard and Oxford. He was a consultant to the League of Nations in the 1930s and on the Board of Economic Warfare during World War II.
