Biography/HistoryEarly in 1907, $65, 000 was appropriated for the construction of an engineering building. When completed, the structure was a three-story building measuring 80 feet by 90 feet. It contained lecture rooms, laboratories and classrooms for work in subjects ranging from Mechanical Engineering to Freehand Drawing to blue printing to photography. Space was even allocated for the Lyceum of Engineers (NDAC Catalog, 1910-1911, p. 18). The formal opening of the building was held on Saturday, January 25, 1908. The Ninth Biennial Report of the Board of Trustees describes the building as being "devoted almost exclusively to the courses of mechanical engineering, civil engineering, steam engineering and physics. There are five general classrooms and two lecture rooms with elevated seats, each of which will accommodate a hundred students.
