    Biographical Information:

    Malcolm A. Love received his bachelor’s degree at Simpson College, Iowa in 1927. In 1933 and 1937, he received his Masters of Arts and his Ph.D. at the University of Iowa, respectively. Before coming to San Diego State, he was President of the University of Nevada for two years.
    Malcolm A. Love was the 4th President sworn in as President of San Diego State in 1952. During his nineteen years as President, he was able to transform San Diego State College into a university. When he retired in 1971 student enrollment had reached more than 30,000, and full-time faculty rose to 1,128. In addition, SDSU received more than $6 million in research money and was able to establish graduate degrees in 52 programs. He encouraged the faculty to establish a senate which was formed in 1959. In 1966, the Carnegie Corporation named Dr. Love one of the best college Presidents in the country.
    With the extraordinary growth of students, faculty and facilities, there were plans for a great new library to house over one million volumes to be named in honor of Malcolm A. Love. The library was dedicated to him in May 1971. Dr. Love was a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha, national social fraternity; Phi Delta Kappa, educational fraternity; Phi Kappa Phi, scholastic fraternity and Rotary International.
