MU will honor former Chancellor Richard Wallace with a naming ceremony for the Richard L. Wallace Atrium at the west entrance of Ellis Library at 6 p.m. Oct. 2.

Interim Chancellor Brady Deaton and Wallace will speak, and a plaque will be unveiled. Other dignitaries are expected to attend and give brief tributes to Wallace, who retired in August.

After the naming, a black-tie dinner in honor of Wallace and his wife, Patricia, will be at 7 p.m. at the Reynolds Alumni Center for the Library Society and invited guests.

Diane Glancy, an MU alumna and poet, playwright and novelist, will deliver the keynote address. Glancy’s latest work, “Stone Heart,” is a narrative from the perspective of Sacagawea.
