Description:
Born February 28, 1917 in Dorchester, NE, Louis A. Kenney received his BA from Nebraska State College, Kearney in 1939. He completed a BS and a MS in Library Science at the University of Illinois, Urbana. Kenney served as San Diego State's University Librarian from 1961 to 1980. During his tenure, Kenney played an instrumental role in planning for a new library building; the Malcolm A. Love Library which opened in 1971. As a result, the library's collection tripled in size and Kenney was able to play a key role in establishing the Special Collections department. The Louis A. Kenney Papers documents Kenney's years as University Librarian at San Diego State University.
