It is dedicated to Ernst F. Lied’s parents, Ernst M. and Ida K. Lied. Ernst F. Lied attended the University of Kansas from 1923 to 1925 and later graduated from the University of Nebraska. Upon his death, Christina Hixson was appointed as Trustee of the Lied Foundation Trust. An additional gift from the Lied Foundation provided for the construction of the Pavilion. The Pavilion was completed in August 2011. The expansion of the main lobby (Kemper Foyer) was made possible with a gift from the William T. Kemper Foundation.
