On the Hill.
In February, President Graham announced that all future building construction for
Clarkson would be on the hill, the first for academic purposes to be the proposed $6 million
Arts and Sciences Center. It was to be erected on the crest of the hill southwest of Moore
House. Construction of this Science Center began in the summer of 1966, was completed the
fall of the following year, and was open for occupancy for the fall semester of 1969.
The building itself consists of three stories, with four auditoria capable of seating 700
students, and a partial basement for equipment storage. Calling for 18 general classrooms, 36
instructional laboratories, 96 faculty offices, and $90,000 worth of scientific equipment, this
building was prompted by a federal grant for $1.5 million from the US Higher Education
Facilities Fund Act. That grant, the largest in Clarkson history at the time, was recommended to
the federal government by the New York State Board of Regents.
Graham Inaugurated.
John W. Graham, Jr., became Clarkson's 11th president with his formal
inauguration on June 3, and the following day, the College awarded degrees to 330 bachelor's,
81 master's, and four PhDs.
