Answer

The Library is named after Joseph Mark Lauinger, a 1967 Georgetown alumnus who died in Vietnam. Philip Lauinger Jr. is a long-standing member of our Library Board, and various members of the Lauinger family have established endowment funds that benefit the Library. This obituary of P.C. Lauinger sums up the beginnings of the Library's relationship with the familiy. More such stories can be found by searching the Library Associates newsletters.
