Building Dedication files

One of the remarkable things about Brigham Young University is its attempt to integrate academic excellence with spiritual development. This dual purpose is reflected in the built environment of the campus. Each of the campus buildings is used for sacred worship services on Sunday and the Marriott Center is the site of spiritual devotionals every Tuesday. Each building is dedicated to the dual purpose of enhancing the mind and the spirit. The Building Dedication files (UA 877) contains flyers, programs, invitations, speeches, dedicatory prayers, and other memorabilia associated with the dedications of various campus buildings. Although not comprehensive in its coverage, this collection allows researchers to gain a better understanding of the role that the physical environment plays in Brigham Young University’s efforts to integrate the sacred and the secular.¬† To access the finding aid for this collection click here.

The Building Dedication files are available for research in the Perry Special Collections (1130 HBLL) and are an important resource for understanding¬† Brigham Young University’s built environment and the important role it plays in the integration of the sacred and the secular.¬† If you would like to learn more information about this collection, please contact the University Archivist at (801) 422-5821 or gordon_daines@byu.edu .
