The Philip Weltner Library was expanded in 1991.
Lowry Hall, which houses the library, was used as a dormitory and a medical school.
The portraits of Lord and Lady Oglethorpe were the gift of Mrs. J. M. High who started the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
The building was copied after Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
The Library was named in honor of Philip Weltner, past president of Oglethorpe University.
