Biographical/Historical note

Throughout its 69-year history, the bookstore, operating in four different locations during that time, served well the needs of the faculty and students, and at the same time made a modest profit, which was used for University purposes. Until the summer of 1961 the bookstore had been an "orphan" in the organizational structure of the University, but one of the first new buildings erected during the Wilkinson administration provided it with an attractive home. Herald R. Clark, after whom the Student Supply Association Building was named in 1953, was bookstore manager from 1915 to 1952. He operated the facility in addition to his other duties. From 1952 until 1961 the bookstore was managed by H. Neil McKnight, who was followed by Ivan L. Sanderson. When Sanderson resigned to become manager of the Stanford University Bookstore in 1968, he was replaced by Roger E. Utley, former assistant manager.
