The doors of Loyola College, situated in two houses on Holliday Street, were opened. In April, 1853, the institution was vested by the State of Maryland with “the power to. confer any degree or degrees in any of the faculties, arts and sciences and liberal professions, which are usually permitted to be conferred in any colleges and uni- versities in the Lnited States of America.” From this embryonic stage the history of Loyola has been a story of continual expansion and influence.

FACULTY HOUSE SCIENCE BUILDING LIBRARY BUILDING Loyola Today MEMORIAL CHAPEL by the prominence and success of many of its graduates. In February, 1855, the College moved to Calvert Street where it remained for more than half a century. In 1921, the Rev. Joseph A. AIcEneany, S.J., Rector of Loyola from 1918 to 1928, purchased the Garrett estate (Evergreen) through generous finan- cial assistance. The Science Building was completed in 1923 through the generosity of Mr. George C. Jenkins. The late Rev. Francis Craig, pastor of the Shrine of the Sacred Heart, Mount Washington, supplied the material for the first chapel (now the Student Lounge). The Alumni Gymnasium was completed in 1925 after an extensive campaign for funds. The Library Building, built through the financial assist- ance of Mr. and Airs. George C. Jenkins, was com- pleted in May, 1929. The temporary Dell buildings were obtained from the Navy through the Meade Act. The Chapel of Our Lady of Evergreen (Memorial Chapel) was completed in 1951.
