Landregans Donate Personal Theology Collection to Blakley Library

University of Dallas alumni and active Dallas Catholics Steven T. '73 and Barbara '03 Landregan have put their personal library of theology books into the hands of UD students and faculty by donating it to the Blakley Library recently. The books, which are being catalogued now, are expected to be on shelves and available for use soon.

The library's theology collection is known to be one of the best collections on Catholic philosophy, apologetics and pastoral ministry.

"These 400-some volumes will be a welcome addition to our collection," said Cherie Hohertz, access services librarian.

The university's annual Landregan Lecture series honors Steven Landregan's career as an archivist, author and former editor of the Texas Catholic. The 15th Annual Landregan Lecture, on Dec. 7, 2013, will host speaker Miguel H. Diaz, former ambassador to the Holy See. Previous Landregan lecturers include Rev. James Martin, S.J., Br. Guy Consolmagno, John Allen and Robert Barron.
