New Exhibit Open House: Tuesday, Sept. 28

All are invited to an open house for a special new Law Library exhibit, which commemorates and celebrates the life and career of Walter F. Mondale:

When: Tuesday, September 28, from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Where: Riesenfeld Rare Books Research Center (N30 - subplaza level)

Cookies, brownies, bagged snacks and drinks will be available. 

Walter Mondale ('56) (1928-2021) left an indelible legacy on the national political landscape. His achievements in Congress, the White House, and in Minnesota are a testament to his great skill, courage, and integrity. The Vice President’s enduring contributions were driven by his vision for a country bound by its commitments to fairness, justice, and opportunity. Mondale’s passing this year marked the loss of a great friend, particularly for the Law School’s wide community. Though we grieve his death, we also commemorate his outstanding life of leadership and service.
Through photographs, documents, and quotations, the Law Library’s new exhibit traces the Vice President’s career from his formative years in Minnesota to his service as a U.S. Senator, Vice President of the United States, and as an elder statesman. The exhibit also highlights the Vice President's close relationship with the Law School whose building bears his name. For more than sixty years, Mondale's deep involvement in the life of the Law School reflected his generous commitment to his alma mater, rooted in an unshakeable faith in education as the path to a better society. In the same spirit, the current library exhibit honors Walter Mondale’s monumental career and legacy.
