Remember When...

The latest scientific advance at Moravian College was the new chemistry laboratory in the Memorial Science Building?

The year was 1947, and improvements included birch cabindets equipped with gas, hot and cold water, and separate compartments for each student. "Industrial fluorescent lights" were also a bragging point of the project, which cost $20,000.

Memorial Science Building became Memorial Hall in 1973, after the construction of Collier Hall of Science.
