The Peterson Business Wing is located on the Main Level of the Library. Funds for construction of this wing and its endowment were the generous gift of Clementine Lockwood Peterson, whose bequest funded the Business Library in memory of her husband, J. Whitney Peterson. Business materials and databases are paid for by funds from the Town of Greenwich and the Peterson Foundation.
