About the Building
The building now known as the Waring Historical Library served as the library for Porter Military Academy until 1965; it was constructed in 1894 at a cost of $7,500. Originally named for Reverend Charles Frederick Hoffman of New York, the building was renamed in 1969 for Dr. Joseph I. Waring, a local pediatrician and medical historian, who became the first director of the medical history collections of the University.
