Quote: The Science Hall is at last an assured fact. Plans for the
building have been adopted by the Trustees. It is to be very complete and
convenient and will contain an elegant room for the display of natural
history. The building will cost $15,000, and one generous friend of the
College has promised $5,000 on the condition that the college will raise
$10,000. Davidson College Magazine. June 1898: 520.

Named for: William Joseph Martin (1830-1896), Davidson College
professor of chemistry, geology, and natural history and acting college
