Excerpt from Year Book, 1915-16: Goodwyn Institute

This, the ninth annual season of public lectures, given free to the citizens of Memphis by Goodwyn Institute, begins November 9th, 1915, and ends April 21st, 1916.

The Goodwyn Institute lectures have now become an important and firmly established part of the educational, cultural and recreational life of Memphis, and each year the appearance of the Institute's Year Book, giving the schedule of the season's lectures and announcing the growth and new special work of the Library, is eagerly awaited by its large number of interested patrons.

The vast majority of the citizens of Memphis, whom this Year Book will reach, are familiar with the history and purposes of Goodwyn Institute, and a short statement of these is necessary here only for the enlightenment of the stranger and the new patron.

Goodwyn Institute was founded by Mr. William A. Goodwyn, a former citizen of Memphis, who gave practically his entire fortune, amounting to about $500,000, to endow it. Mr. Goodwyn's will provided that this endowment should be invested in a building, to be named Goodwyn Institute, and that the income from the rentals of the building should maintain its two educational agencies. The work and purposes of the Institute can best and most succinctly be explained by quoting from Mr. Goodwyn's will:

"The building or buildings to be erected shall be satisfactory to said commissioners, but such portion thereof as can shall be rented for the purpose of obtaining a revenue for the maintenance of a public library and public lectures.
