Collection Description

Biographical Note

Candler Hall housed the library on the Oxford campus from the time of its construction in 1897 through 1969. In 1963 the decision was made to construct a new library building. Groundbreaking for the building was held on January 19, 1968. Two years later, on January 19, 1970 a “book walk” took place to transfer the books from the old facility to the new. Students, Oxford faculty and staff, as well as Oxford residents participated by carrying the 23,102 volumes, 331 unbound pieces and 163 maps from Candler Hall and placing them on the shelves in the new library.

In 1983 the Oxford College Library became the Hoke O’Kelley Memorial Library, in recognition of Mr. O’Kelley’s devotion to the Methodist Church and to education, upon presentation of a major gift to the college by Mrs. Willie D. O’Kelley Dubois.
