Catherine H. Balkey Theology Library Endowment Fund
Catherine Balkey received four degrees from Duquesne University between 1937 and 1975. In 1975 she achieved the Masters of Arts in Theology at the age of seventy five. Catherine always expressed a deep love for books and theology. Through the establishment of a library endowment fund in 1980, she was able to combine these loves and continue her support of Duquesne's Theology Department in perpetuity.
The Balkey gift has significantly enhanced library holdings in the area of Catholic Theology by hundreds of books and journals and special collections. The principal is valued at approximately one half million dollars.For further information on this fund, or if you wish to contribute to the Balkey Fund, please contact the Department of Theology.
