What’s in a name?

January 29th, 2010

Have you ever wondered about those individuals for whom our campus buildings are named–who they were and how they have come to be so honored? As part of an ongoing series from University Communications, you can learn a little more about the people behind the buildings.

This week, we were delighted to see that Harry Steenbock was featured. Should you wish to learn more about Harry Steenbock and his legacy, I encourage you to consult the following links and/or consider a visit to the University Archives. The University Archives maintains biographical files, interviews and papers from the distinguished faculty and staff of this institution. The Archives also supports a variety of digital collections.
