William K. Warren, Jr., a resident of Tulsa, Okla., is a 1956 graduate of Notre Dame and chair of the foundation created by his father.p. Plans call for a complete renovation of the building, located northeast of the Main Building and known to older alumni as “the Infirmary.” The project will include new ventilation, electrical, plumbing and fire-protection systems.p. “Bill Warren’s continued generosity to Notre Dame is an inspiration to us all,” said Rev. Edward A. Malloy, C.S.C., the University’s president. “This project will be another significant improvement to the quality of student life on campus, a continuing priority in recent years.”p. Ann E. Kleva, director of University Health Services, recently visited the Warren family in Tulsa, where they have supported a number of local health facilities. “I’ve never seen such caring, such warm people in my whole life,” she said.p. The renovated campus facility will be named for the Warren family. Construction is scheduled to begin in May 2005, and be completed in August 2006. The building was constructed in 1935.p. Warren, a member of the University’s Board of Trustees, has been a major supporter of academic and student life activities at Notre Dame, including the William K. and Natalie O.Warren Golf Course that is named in honor of his parents.
