From the Report of the Dean 1971–1972, Dean Shaffer writes: "The building project will cost about $1.6 million. The Kresge Foundation generously provided $750,000 of this cost.... The remaining cost will be paid out of pledges given by our alumni and friends in the Law Center program and by a $214,000 federal construction grant first secured by Dean O'Meara in 1967. Notre Dame's ability to proceed now with this important project obviously owes much to Deans O'Meara and Lawless." (251)
