Share Your Memories of Former Professors

December 15, 2003

Do you remember taking classes or visiting professors in Thaxter, Throckmorton, or Edmonds? In preparation for deconstructing these circa-1960s buildings to pave the way for Howard Hall—a new 50,000-square-foot building for teaching and research—the College wants to honor the memory of the beloved professors after whom the buildings were named: 

  • Benjamin Thaxter, former professor of English and field biology
  • Arthur Throckmorton, former chair of the history department
  • T.J. Edmonds, former professor of business administration

Share your stories and reflections about these professors, and help Lewis & Clark perpetuate their legacies on campus. Contact Janel McKenna, College Relations, Lewis & Clark College, 0615 S.W. Palatine Hill Road, Portland, Oregon 97219, 503-768-7909 (phone), 503-768-7945 (fax)
