Memory Lane: January 15, 1973


From the January 15, 1973 edition of The Wayne Herald

Benthack Hall is name of new WSC building

A new building to be erected at Wayne State College will be named the Walter Benthack Hall of Applied Science.

It honors Dr. Benthack, who has practiced medicine in Wayne since 1930 and swerved on the state college governing board from 1939 to 1945.

Dr. Benthack built a hospital in 1937 and directed its operation until the city of Wayne purchased it as a municipal hospital about 1 year ago.

The new applied science hall will house classes in industrial education, home economics and safety education.

Construction will start when weather permits.
