Who was Ernest J. Allen?
The Escondido Center campus library is named
in honor of Valley Center dairy farmer Ernest J. Allen. Thanks to a
bequest from Mr. Allen, the Palomar College Library built its first
'branch', the Ernest J. Allen Library (EJA), which opened September
22, 1997. To further honor our benefactor the library maintains a
collection of dairy memorabilia, including a few items from the
Allen dairy. The Palomar College Foundation currently administers
investments made with the remainder of Mr. Allen's financial gift.
Interest accrued on the funds remains available to further enhance
library services to students at the Escondido Center.
