From the Archives with Byron Hanson: November-December 2015

This From the Archives was originally published on Nov. 16, 2010. Mr. Hanson has been busy being interviewed for his profile.

Nov. 18, 1962: The Liberal Arts Building wa s dedicated on this Sunday morning in the presence of benefactor, Stanley S. Kresge and architect Alden B. Dow, whose circular floor plan presented a new “look” to classroom design. Mr. Dow spoke first, describing his concept for our growing educational campus, then Mr. Kresge made the presentation and Dr. Maddy accepted the building, echoing a ceremony he had enacted many times before. Even though the original campus plans were changed over time, it is reassuring to know that although our school was only two months old, dreams and plans for the future were very much alive in the minds and hearts of the giants in whose footsteps we tread.
