- On 12 April the Heritage Room of Weinberg Library hosted a dedication for the Joseph M. McDade Congressional Papers Collection and the Congressman McDade study room. More than 100 invited guests attended the ceremony which featured comments by Father Joseph McShane, Father Alan Panuska, Charles Kratz, and Congressman McDade. The study room, located on the third floor of the Library, is decorated with photographs and mementos from the Congressman's career, as well as with a specially commissioned portrait of Mr. McDade.
