Additional Information

A photograph of Room 109 in Babcock Hall, circa 1911. The room contains a table in the center of the room covered with stacks of papers. Bookshelves, a radiator, a glass storage cabinet, and a typewriter, and two windows line the walls. Back of the photograph reads: "Room 109 Babcock ca 1911". ND built the Mining Engineering Building in 1907 and was dedicated June 1908. In 1909, UND constructed two additions to the north and south of the building to accommodate ceramics and a mining experiment station. In 1910, a serious fire destroyed the northern third of the roof and caused extensive water damage to the north half of the building. On September 3, 1925, the building was named after Dean Earle J. Babcock. (Information from E. F. Chandler's History of All Buildings, page 7)
