Approval for Bush Library





Fending off a last-ditch protest from within the church, Southern Methodist University received final approval from its owner, a regional wing of the United Methodist Church, to house the George W. Bush Library complex, which includes a museum and a policy institute.

Gerald Turner, the university’s president.
