25 years ago: New Haworth Hall addition dedicated at KU

April 13, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 13, 1986:

  • Kansas University recently held dedication ceremonies for the new $12.7 million Haworth Hall addition. A lecture by John Maynard Smith, a noted evolutionary biologist and professor emeritus at the University of Sussex in England, highlighted the weekend. Construction on the addition had begun in January 1983 and had been completed in 1985. The new building was to house the departments of physiology and cell biology, botany, entomology, and systematics and ecology. The original Haworth Hall was still home to the biochemistry and microbiology departments. An overhead walkway connected the new addition with Malott Hall, home of the physics and astronomy, chemistry, and pharmacy programs.
  • A BMW parked behind the Kansas Union on the KU campus had apparently slipped its brake at around noon, rolling across Mississippi Street and bumping into the Spencer Museum of Art. Damage to the building was minimal, but the car’s damages were estimated at more than $500. No one was injured in the incident.
