From the Archives: Atlanta University Bulletin, July 1972
46 years ago this month, The Atlanta University alumni newsletter, the Atlanta University Bulletin, featured a photo of Major Richard R. Wright's children and announced the establishment of the Richard Wright Library in the  School of Business.
Caption: Mr. E. C. Wright and Mrs. Harriet Wright Hines of Philadelphia, son, and daughter of the late Major Richard R. Wright for whom the School of Business Administration is named visited the campus recently and gave the school several cartons of books which belonged to their father. Mr. Wright and Mrs. Hines pose here with Dean Robert C. Vowels (R) of the school. During their visit, they lunched with President Jarrett and toured the city. The books belonging to their father will be used to establish a Richard Wright Library in the School of Business Administration.
