About Holden Observatory
The second building to be built on campus, Holden Observatory was designed by architect Archimedes Russell and completed in 1887. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, it was moved to its current location in 1991. In 2015, Holden will reopen, refurbished, as a laboratory for undergraduate students in introductory astronomy classes.
Funded by a gift from Marvin Druger, professor emeritus of science education in the College of Arts and Sciences, the renewed space will be named for his late wife, Patricia Meyers Druger G’74, who loved both astronomy and Holden Observatory.
The building is scheduled to open in January and its dedication is planned for March 28, 2015. Contact Karen Weiss Jones at 315-443-2028 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
