Breaking Ground for new Engineering Building
Arthur Collins moving the first soil in a ground breaking ceremony at the new Engineering Building during the winter of 1953. The facility was completed and occupied in 1954 and was named Building-120.
We have that shovel in one of our Museum back rooms. It was later engraved with the details of the event.
