Comments

  • The Law Library is named in his honor. "It seems little short of inspiration that his devoted wife and helpmate should have struck upon the idea of perpetuating his memory by the creation, at this great University, of the Alexander Campbell King Memorial Library." Jack J. Spalding in an address delivered at the dedication of the Alexander Campbell King Memorial Library, October 29, 1932.
  • See the program for the dedication ceremony. A biography of King begins on page 11.
