The Marvin L. Stone Library at Marshall University was rededicated Friday during a ceremony in The Parthenon student newspaper newsroom on the Huntington campus. 

The highlight of the rededication was a ribbon cutting that marked the official opening of the Marvin L. Stone Reading Room, which is now located inside the newsroom. Terry Stone, Marvin Stone's widow, was on hand to cut the ribbon.

Stone was a 1947 Marshall alumnus, graduating from the School of Journalism. He was best known as editor-in-chief of U.S. News & World Report and had a career in journalism that spanned 40 years.

The Marvin L. Stone Reading Room has many items on display, including some of his papers and personal items. Those include letters from Presidents Jimmy Carter, George Bush and Ronald Reagan, and press credentials that gave Stone access to many major events. Students can access Stone digital archives from the reading room.
