College Library “Window To The Future” Dedicated In Honor Of Dean Affleck

Capital’s longtime Academic Dean, Mary Ann Affleck, was honored on September 18th at the dedication of a “Window To The Future” at the Arthur C. Banks, Jr. Library where Affleck served as Library Director before her appointment as the College’s  academic leader.

Affleck retired in August prior to the start of the new academic year after nearly 30 years of service to the College.  Upon news of her retirement colleagues, faculty and staff emeriti and friends responded over the summer with donations to the College’s Foundation endowment funds for scholarships and the Hartford Heritage Program.

“Windows” gifts began when the college moved to its downtown campus in 2002. The renovation of the former G. Fox building into the new home of Capital included the restoration of more than 90 windows with views of Main Street and downtown.
