|Biography/History||Morris Beck, a businessman, left the Alfred Dickey Free Library in Jamestown, N.D. $13,000 to be used as needed. On August 15, 1951, The Feast of the Assumption, the fulfillment of a long dream came true with the dedication and open house of the Beck Addition at St. John's Academy. This addition, with the price tag of $175,000, was made possible through the $50,000 legacy of the late Morris Beck, a Jewish businessman, whose generous gifts and sincere interest made possible the addition named in his honor. |
