Dedication of Edward H. Levi Hall
The University of Chicago rededicated its main Administration building as Edward H. Levi Hall on Oct. 14, 2013, honoring the former dean, provost and president who helped shape the University and set it on its current course.
The grandson of one of the University’s founding faculty members, Levi received degrees from the Laboratory Schools, the College and the Law School, and went on to serve as dean of the Law School and acting dean of the College. He was the first University leader to hold the title of provost, and in 1968 he became the first UChicago alumnus to serve as president of the University. He later served as U.S. Attorney General.
