It was the gift of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Huffington of Houston and Michael Huffington '65 of Los Angeles. Over 45,000 volumes were moved from the Legion Memorial Building library in a single day in a carefully orchestrated action by students.

The ethos of the Culver Academies was augmented with the dedication of the 47,000 sq. ft. Huffington Library on October 1, 1993.
