In 1909, UND constructed two additions to the north and south of the building to accomodate ceramics and a mining expreiment station. In 1910, a serious fire destroyed the norther 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).
