Mullen Library Trivia:
“An interesting part of the history of Mullen Library is that the space where the May Gallery stands was originally the office for the University Rector/President. The Office of the President was in Mullen Library, room 107, from 1928 up until the Nugent Hall property was gifted to the University from the Vincentian Fathers in 1979. Dr. Clarence Walton was the last university president to work in Mullen Library.” (Knoblauch and Mazzenga, 2012)
