Part of John Galen Howard's original campus design, the glade had been overwhelmed by ugly "temporary" buildings constructed during World War II. Construction of the library's underground Gardner Stacks and removal of the temporary structures allowed the creation of this major green open space, conducive to personal reflection and informal leisure activities. At the northwest corner of the glade is a memorial pool honoring members of the campus community who lost their lives in World War II.
