The historic Kendrick Library

Evangel (then College) was founded in 1955 on the site of the former WWII-era O’Reilly Army Hospital.

As campus development was being planned, early leaders demonstrated their commitment to academic achievement by building the library as the first permanent structure on campus.

The facility was completed in 1963 and is named for Dr. Klaude Kendrick, Evangel’s first president (1955-1958).
