-UNH held a ceremony to honor two important men who had helped shape its history.

-The renaming of the Engineering building to Buckman Hall honored Jacob Finley Buckman, a New Haven area philanthropist, industrialist and civic leader. The renaming was made possible by support and generosity of his widow, Mrs. Clarice L. Buckman.

-The second man honored was Ellis C. Maxcy, UNH’s first director and the only person in its history to have been an instructor, director, member and chairman of the Board of Governors. Maxcy Hall was dedicated in his honor on this day.
