November 9, 2004: “Va. Education Leaders Meet at Sweet Briar to Discuss Partnerships, Future”
by Kevin Miller, The Roanoke Times

September 13, 2004: “$3 Million Gift Creates Kitty Corbett Powell ’38 Reading Room”
Sweet Briar College has received a $3 million gift from Kitty King Corbett Powell, class of 1938, of Houston, for the
renovation and expansion of the Mary Helen Cochran Library. In recognition of Powell’s extraordinary generosity,
the College is naming the library’s main reading room “The Kitty Corbett Powell `38 Reading Room” in a dedication
ceremony on Friday, Sept. 24, during the 2004 Alumnae Council Weekend. As the only intact interior space on
campus designed by architect Ralph Adams Cram, the leading college architect in the United States at the time of its
design, the main reading room continues to be an incomparable central gathering place for reading or studying and is
memorable to Sweet Briar students from every generation. The room has walls graced by Corinthian pilasters and a
soaring ceiling crowning the space with geometric design. It will be restored to its original beauty and functionality,
thus bringing new life to one of the most magnificent places on campus. “I decided to support the new Library and
Technology Center because I am so fond of Sweet Briar, of libraries, and of Ralph Adams Cram and his work,” said
Powell. “This is such a worthwhile project, and I know that Sweet Briar will use the money to great advantage.” The
Mary Helen Cochran Library was designed in 1927 by the Boston architectural firm Cram and Ferguson and
completed in 1929. Through her campaign investment, Powell will help launch the renovation of the original library
structure, the first step in the expansion of the Library and Technology Center. “The new Library and Technology
Center is incredibly important to the Sweet Briar community because we must continue forging ahead, making
improvements all of the time,” Powell said. “It is a shame for the current library facility to be so antiquated.” In fall
2002, Sweet Briar embarked on the largest comprehensive fund-raising effort in the College’s history with the public
announcement of an unprecedented campaign goal of $102 million. Our Campaign For Her World emphasizes a mix
of endowment, facility, and program objectives and seeks support for the College’s Annual Fund. In addition to the
building needs that the campaign will support, faculty and students will benefit from scholarships and funds for many
academic activities. More than $80 million in gifts and pledges to the campaign have been received. The campaign
goal and first-phase funding for the Library and Technology Center is $6,400,000. With the addition of Powell’s $3
million gift, this goal — partial funding for the entire project — is nearly complete. Powell is the managing trustee of
The Powell Foundation. Her husband, the late Ben H. Powell, was executive vice president, director, and chief
counsel for Brown & Root, Inc. She is the mother of Marian Harrison, class of 1963. To learn more about Our
Campaign For Her World and the plans for the proposed Library and Technology Center, please visit giving.sbc.edu.
