Our Time to Lead Campaign: Noble Cunningham’s Estate Gift Puts the Libraries Over the Top

It is with a deep sense of gratitude that we announce University Libraries completed MU’s Our Time To Lead campaign with a total of $12,515,032! Thank you! Roughly $9 million of the total came in the form of bequest commitments and estate gifts. We are thankful that so many alumni and friends think of the University Libraries when they are considering their estate plans and finalizing wills. The vast majority of campaign giving was directed to endowments, providing steady, dependable support for library collections and services for years to come.

The campaign also brought some touching surprises, none bigger than the recent gift from the estate of Noble E.
Cunningham, Jr. As a professor of history, Dr. Cunningham was an avid library user and maintained great relationships
with many of the librarians. He was a regular patron of interlibrary loan services and kept an office in Ellis Library. Retired librarian and history subject specialist, Anne Edwards, remembered him as a renowned scholar and author who was humble, gracious and welcoming. Dr. Cunningham passed in 2007, without sharing the extent of his generosity with University Libraries. When his wife, Dana, passed away in 2019, we were notified by his attorney that he had left a gift for his existing endowment. We knew last fall that it would beat least $10,000. This spring we received his gift of
$3,026,457.46! Dr. Cunningham also left $500,000 for the Noble E. Cunningham, Jr. Professorship in History. His gift to the University Libraries carried us to our goal and beyond, and was a fitting way to close out the campaign – with a gift from one of Mizzou’s great scholars, in recognition of the professional library services which he valued so deeply.

From our faculty, staff, students and the many patrons of Ellis and our incredible specialized libraries, we say THANK YOU!!!

Health Sciences Library Wish List 2018: Books

The health sciences librarians  listed 100 of our “Most Wanted” books on the 2018 University Libraries book wish list. For as little as $22, you can help our continued mission of supporting health sciences teaching and research at MU.

To view the full list of titles we would have loved to purchase, please visit library.missouri.edu/giving/wishlist

In spring of 2017, MU librarians created a wish list of over 400 titles that would enhance teaching and research, but that could not be purchased due to fiscal restraints. The response from alumni and friends exceeded our highest expectations. Fifty-six donors purchased 105 books and electronic book collections, totaling $22,270 in gifts.

Don’t see anything here that appeals to you? Let us know what you’re interested in at asklibrary@health.missouri.edu
