Although characterized by trial and misfortune at its earlier locations, the University has expanded and prospered since it moved to its present site in 1927. The Gleeson Library, dedicated in 1950 to the memory of Rev. Richard A. Gleeson, S.J., houses a collection of over 74,000 volumes and 1,800 periodicals. Modern throughout, the building is a justifiable source of pride for the University.

We are living in an age characterized by insecurity and indecision. Everyday experience brings to our attention a large segment of humanity flailing about in the quicksands of man's limited intellect, because, sadly enough, far too human beings have rejected God as the real ultimate cause of all things and seek that cause in some puny, finite thing.
With this thought foremost in our minds, we take this opportunity to pause for a moment and offer thanks to God for the privilege of obtaining a special kind of university education ... a Jesuit Education based on the recognition of God as the true Author of this universe ... an education based on ultimate values. As we go into life's various paths we glance back fondly on the Alma Mater who has acted in the role of a true mother by arming us not only with different types of technical skills, but even more important, by preparing us to face the greatest battles we will ever face in life . . . the battles of soul and intellect.
Even to this point, however, our thanks are not complete. We would like to point to the real unsung heroes behind the progress story of the University of San Francisco. We would like to point toward every parent who has ever been connected with this first one hundred years of our beloved hilltop.
SO IT IS THAT WE HUMBLY DEDICATE THIS CENTENNIAL VOLUME OF THE DON TO THE FATHERS AND MOTHERS EVERYWHERE WHO HAVE SACRIFICED SO MUCH IN ORDER THAT WE, THEIR CHILDREN. MIGHT HAVE THE BEST IN EDUCATION, AND, STILL MORE APPROPRIATELY. WE TENDER OUR SALUTE TO THE FATHERS AND MOTHERS OF ALL OUR TEACHERS THE WORLD OVER, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO HAVE OFFERED THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS TO GOD IN THE RELIGIOUS LIFE IN ORDER THAT WE MIGHT HAVE INSTRUCTORS AND COUNSELORS . . .
