Tabor alums from Indiana donate personal library to college

Daryl B. and Rosalie Adrian, Muncie, Ind., recently donated their personal library collections to Tabor College.

The first collection, donated by the couple, consists of about 2,500 volumes with subjects ranging from British and American literature to humanities and biblical studies.

It was donated in memory of Tabor College professor emeritus Wesley J. Prieb.

“Dr. Adrian;s gift of his personal library collection is a fantastic addition to the library’s American and English literature holdings,” said Adam Wathen, director of library services at Tabor.

“Students for years to come will be served by these high quality materials. We are very excited about Dr. Adrian’s generosity.”

Rosalie donated an assortment of old German books to the Center for Mennonite Brethren Studies, Tabor College, in memory of her parents, J.D. and Justina Schlichting.

Daryl Adrian, who served as professor for 32 years at Ball State University, Muncie, is now a professor emeritus of that institution.

Rosalie Adrian served for 15 years as executive assistant to the chief executive officer of the Ball Corp.

The Adrians are members of the Tabor College Class of 1955.
