About the Foundation

Marian P. Holleman served as the first Head Librarian at the University of San Diego from 1969 until her retirement in 1989 when she was designated Librarian Emeritus. Marian’s husband, Roy, served as the Head Librarian at the College of Women - one of the two colleges that merged to form the University of San Diego - prior to his passing in 1969. Both Marian and Roy were native born Canadians from the city of Toronto who immigrated to the United States in the 1960s.
