THE LENA B. WATSON RESIDENCE CENTER FOR MEN
The CENTER erected in 1966 is located on the southeastern part of the campus behind BROWN-DANIEL LIBRARY. During Homecoming Celebration November 26, 1964 at 2:00 p.m. Mrs. Watson's family members planted a tree as a living memorial. An open house in LENA B. WATSON I (HENRY ALLEN BOYD HALL) was held following the tree planting. The seven-story building houses upperclassmen.
