Swan Hall Dedication

It’s official: On May 14 Independence Hall was renamed M. Beverly Swan Hall in honor of the former provost and vice president for academic affairs, and Justin Smith Morrill Distinguished University Professor.

“There were only two times in the years that we worked together that the president has left me speechless,” remarked Swan, who retired in June. “When he told me about the re-naming of Independence is one of them. I never, ever thought anything like this would happen—especially with a building with which I have so much history.”

The reception that followed the dedication included a surprise: President Carothers unveiled a sculpted metal swan, right photo, which hangs on a wall in the lobby. At left, the former provost chats with sculptor Ed Brown, who created the swan.
