The Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Library is one of the two main undergraduate libraries at the University of Southern California, United States.

History[edit]

The library, completed in the mid-1990s, reflected a shift to designs closer to earlier Romanesque Revival architecture. It was named in honor of Thomas E. Leavey, the founder of Farmers Insurance Group, and his wife, Dorothy Leavey.[1][2] The donation was made through their Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Foundation in 1994.[1][2]
