"I was asked by Dave Scott to put together a brief explanation of how the various buildings on the Stockton campus came to be named as they are. This seems to be an appropriate time to be doing this: we have a relatively new president, a new vice president and another vice president and a dean on the way.
"The named facilities are listed alphabetically by surname. More or less. George Wilson Hall is listed under "W". Grace Covell Hall, however, is listed under "G" because it is often referred to as "Grace." If you don't find it under the surname, look under the first name. If you don't find it either place, what then?"
