Lia G. Poorvu AM ’64 has established a fund to transform the Schlesinger Library’s first floor into an even more dynamic place for research, teaching, exhibition, and convening. The newly renovated space will be named the Lia Gelin Poorvu Lobby and Gallery in recognition of this generous gift, and it will be a gateway for students, faculty members, researchers, and the public to explore the Schlesinger’s unique treasures. “I am so excited to be part of the future of the Schlesinger Library,” Poorvu says, “because of its crucial role in celebrating the lives of American women past and present, not only in the context of the University, but as an invaluable resource for the world beyond.”
