A.T. Still Memorial Library: Celebrating 100 years of service to ATSU 1922-2022

History Note: week of January 3rd

September 20, 1922, seven hundred persons assembled in the auditorium on the upper floor of the new building (formerly the A.T. Still College of Osteopathy and Surgery (ATSCOS), now called Couts Learning Center) to dedicate the new school.  " Located to the west of the lobby were the president's suite and the A.T. Still Memorial Library..."

In 1924, ATSCOS closed its doors and merged with the American School of Osteopathy (now A.T. Still University.) The libraries were combined, keeping the name A.T. Still Memorial Library.

In the 1932-33 school year, changes to the administration building (now the Cout's Learning Center) saw the A.T. Still Memorial Library moving from its first-floor location to a more prominent place on the second floor of the building.

Graduation at  A.T. Still College of Osteopathy and Surgery

Class exercises for the graduating class of the A.T. Still College of Osteopathy and Surgery were held on May 16, 1924

"A year ago at this time, the graduating class presented the school with a token which we all appreciated. It was a pledge that each member would contribute ten dollars for a year for five years for some useful purpose. We decided that the contributions of the class of 1923 should be used for the library purposes."
