Hall to be named for Father Malloy



The new philosophy and theology building, between Decio and O’Shaugnessy halls, will be called Edward A. Malloy, CSC, Hall.

Naming the building for President Malloy was the wish of the person whose gift underwrote its construction — Donald R. Keough, chairman emeritus of the Board of Trustees.

Keough was among the trustees who selected Malloy as president in 1986. He said he had seen Malloy’s legacy as leader of the University take shape, and he and his family were “pleased that his name will identify the theology and philosophy center at Notre Dame.” The building is scheduled to open this fall.

Malloy, who is also a full professor of theology, said he was “flattered and humbled” by the gesture.
