Built in 1929, Bizzell Memorial Library stands sentry with its Cherokee Gothic architecture as the focal point of the South Oval. The study center was recently included by website CampusGrotto in its top-25 list of the most beautiful college campus libraries in the nation.
Former OU President William Bizzell is to thank for the design of the building and for obtaining the funds to build it, OU President David Boren said in a release.
The library was included among well-known institutions like Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Johns Hopkins University, Darmouth and the University of California, Berkeley.
