Behind the Name
The original library on campus was called Ruthrauff Library and was located where the Clausen Center is now. Hedberg Library was built by MSR Design and was dedicated in 2002. The building is named after Donald D. Hedberg ’50, a chemist, inventor and successful entrepreneur, who challenged Carthage to create a program that would show budding entrepreneurs with science backgrounds how to succeed in business. He backed that challenge with a $1 million gift to endow a professorship for the program. That challenge led to the creation of the ScienceWorks program in 1994.
