Today at a special convocation in the Springfield University Special Events Center, John Doe presented a check for $1,000,000 to President Johnson for the construction of an addition to the Johnson Library. Mr. Doe, a long-time supporter of the University, said that it had been his dream to provide the University with a research-class library. The proposed addition should fulfill that dream.

Groundbreaking ceremonies are scheduled for March 14, 2007, at 12:00 noon with construction to begin the next day. The new addition will be called Luthy Wing in honor of Dr. Michael Luthy, a long-time professor at Springfield University. Mr. Doe wanted to honor Dr. Luthy in return for the outstanding contribution he has made to the University.

John Doe is President of Doe Corporation, one of Springfield's largest employers and a major force in housing construction. He graduated from Springfield University in 1981 and has been a member of its board of trustees since 1991. An avid supporter of the Springfield Broncos, Mr. Doe was instrumental in raising the funds necessary for construction of Bronco Stadium in 1996.

The new addition will increase the capacity of Evans Library to over 2,000,000 volumes, making it the second largest library between The Mississippi River and The Rocky Mountains. Among the collections housed there are the Osborne Film Library, the Charles Smith Papers, and the Kansas Historical Collection.
