Description

This article described Freeman Hall and the person behind its name, Douglas Southall Freeman. Freeman Hall was built in 1965. The article described Freeman's work as a writer, academic, and educator as well as his connection to the University of Richmond. Freeman was an alumnus and former member of the administration. The article told of his childhood in Lynchburg, VA and the "strict upbringing he received from his father, a confederate soldier."

The article concluded with a list of book publications and the awards they have received.
