PUBLISHED BY 
THE GRADUATING CLASS 

AL-HIKMA UNIVERSITY 
BAGHDAD, IRAQ 



DEDICATION 




On the morning of September 26, 1956, Al-Hikma's first group of Freshmen assembled 
in a classroom at Baghdad College in Sulaikh for their first lecture. The lecturer was a 
man whom they and succeeding Al-Hikma students would come to know and love, Rev. 
Joseph L. Ryan. S. J., Dean of the University. 

Since that day, Al-Hikma has grown in many ways. The student bcdy is much larger; 
there are many new faces among the faculty; and the University has moved from a build- 
ing on the Baghdad College campus to its own spacious, well -equipped campus in Zafraniya. 

In gratitude to the priest whose devoted and patient labor has contributed so much to 
this growth of Al-Hikma, and to our own individual spiritual and intellectual growth, we, 
the graduating class of 1962 take great pleasure in dedicating this yearbook to Fr. Ryan.

Roneo 
steel 
library 
shelving 

There are two main types of Roneo 
Library Shelving: Bracket Shelving, for 
general book storage ; and Slotted Upright 
Shelving, for use in reading and reference 
rooms. 

BRACKET SHELVING 

Shelves are of one-piece construction sup- 
ported on pressed steel brackets engaging 
in slots in uprights. 

Supports are of box section welded con- 
struction fully braced. 

SLOTTED UPRIGHT SHELVING 

Shelves are of one-piece construction en- 
gaging and locking in horizontal slots in 
uprights. 

Supports are of double-wall construction 
specially shaped for rigidity with sheet 
steel backs. 

FACTS COMMON TO BOTH TYPES 

Intermediate Floors. When the shelving is 
multi-tier the intermediate decks are 
carried by the shelving uprights. These 
decks can be of concrete planks on steel 
framing members suitably finished on 
upper and lower surfaces. Alternatively, 
steel plank decking can be supplied. 
Finish. Stove enamelled in a wide range of 
colours. 

Roneo can also supply other forms of 
shelving including compact systems. They 
are equipped to handle the complete 
installation of a new library or the 
modernisation of an old one and can 
supply all ancillary equipment.

The Priceless Extra 
of Experience 



Think for a moment of the many choices 
we make in life which are determined 
by our confidence in somebody's expe- 
rience. 

Choice in important things, like selec- 
ting a doctor, a lawyer, or a friendly 
advisor. In less important things, like 
having something repaired. In even 
minor, everyday, personal problems, 
where we want wise guidance. 

So deeply ingrained is this basis for 
choice in all our actions, it comes as no 
surprise when so many experienced 
travelers say that this is why, when they 
fly overseas, they put their trust in Pan 
American. 

For Pan American is "The World's 



Most Experienced Airline" — in years 
of flying over the seven seas — in every 
type of transport plane— in fine mecha- 
nics who maintain these planes — in pilots 
and engineers who fly and navigate 
them— in services to care for you before 
you embark, while on your flight, and 
when you land. Ail under the high 
discipline of U. S. flight standards. 

A Pan American traveler is a confident 
traveler, reposing his trust in these years 
of experience in getting you from here 
to there— comfortably, dependably, 
serenely. 

It's a great experience to fly ivith 
experience on Pan American.
