Ever wonder about these questions? Well, now is your chance to answer them!
Come to the Upper Mall elevator lobby in the CSUEB Hayward Campus Library and discover why the world-renowned academic - the 93-year-old Meiklejohn - made the trek to the new Hayward Campus to give a speech in 1964.
We guarantee you'll never think about the name "Meiklejohn" the same way again!
This exhibit was created at the urging of Larry Sokolov, a lecturer in the CSUEB History Department.
Having taught hundreds of students in the building that bears Alexander Meiklejohn's name, he was concerned how few - if any - knew who Meiklejohn really was, much less why the building was named in his honor. Sokoloff was aware of Meiklejohn's visit to the new Cal-State College at Hayward back in 1964, and he thought it would be a good time to finally connect the dots for the campus community visiting the Library.
In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of Meiklejohn's CSUH campus speech, the Library produced this exhibit, which was located on the Upper Mall elevator lobby.
