Campus cornerstones, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater: Biographical sketches of the people for whom buildings & facilities are named, a publication authored by emeritus professor of history Richard C. Haney, has been digitized and is part of the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections.

So if you’ve been wondering about the people whose names appear on buildings and other facilities around campus, here’s a source of information! You can learn all sorts of interesting things about the campus history. For example, who was the first female on the faculty to hold a Ph.D.? [Hint: This person’s name was not given to an entire building. And the person was known for wearing stylish hats. Just ask the University Archivist, Karen Weston, sometime!]
