The John F. and Jeanne A. Marszalek Library Fund and Lecture Series was established in 2002 by the Marszaleks and by the Mississippi State University Libraries to encourage use of primary source materials related to American history, the Civil War and Reconstruction, Jacksonian America, and race relations. The series includes papers presented by university students and a lecture by an established historian of national reputation.
The Marszalek Library Fund is a special fund used annually to purchase primary source materials to be added to the holdings of Mitchell Memorial Library.
