BYU Center Dedicated

The First Presidency and other General Authorities attended recent dedication ceremonies for the Marriott Center on the Brigham Young University campus. The 23,000-seat activities center was named in honor of J. Willard Marriott, founder of a hotel and restaurant chain, who donated more than $1 million toward its construction. The Marriott Center, one of the largest indoor stadiums in the United States, is the setting for basketball games as well as student assemblies, concerts (seen here), and special events. President Harold B. Lee presided at and conducted the services, at which President N. Eldon Tanner spoke and President Marion G. Romney offered the dedicatory prayer.
