Download PDF for this date

The dedicatory exercises for the new Louis Marshall Memorial Science Building of the New York State College of Forestry, which was recently completed on the campus of the Syracuse University, will take place on February 23.

The ceremonies, which will rally to the campus leading foresters, officials and educators of the country, will be the first big event under the direction of Dr. Spring, the new dean of the Forestry College, who succeeds Dean Hugh P. Baker on February 1.

Meanwhile the plans for the dedication are being arranged so as to be ready for the slated day, and a list of those to whom invitations have been issued will be announced shortly. The name of the principal speaker has not yet been released, but it is believed that former Governor Alfred E. Smith, friend of the late Louis Marshall, and who succeeded him as chairman of the board of trustees of the college, and who laid the cornerstone for the new structure, will be the person.

The new science building will house five departments, which are gradually moving in now, and which will be ready to be opened with the beginning of the new semester in the spring. The Roosevelt wild life experiment station will be included in the new structure, according to present plans.
