Remember the best seats in the library? You know—the beloved and historic egg chairs? The ones you studied in, daydreamed in, and even napped in? (That’s former president Dr. Gene E. Sease to the left, sampling the wonders of one of these classic chairs.)
The egg chairs have occupied the Krannert Memorial Library since 1977 and were in need of being refurbished. Knowing how treasured the chairs are, the Office of Annual Giving solicited gifts to the UIndy Fund this year to help offset the costs of their refurbishment.
Alumnus Peter Mather ’82, a philosophy major, recalls the chairs fondly. “I found the library egg chairs to be a wonderful place to acquire knowledge and get some rest and relaxation,” says Peter. In fact, the egg chairs were so important to him that he made a gift of $1,500, enough to refurbish one chair. The project was completed just in time for students to spend a week studying for finals in them. Next time you’re on campus, be sure to stop by the library and get comfy in one yourself!
If you’d like to help support the egg chair project, you can make a gift to the UIndy Fund. Give online at alumni.uindy.edu/giving.
