Building History

Google Maps, Kien Tran, 2018


Completed in 1970, this center was dedicated in honor of William Edmund Milne in 1972. In 1932, he became head of the mathematics department at Oregon State College, a position he held until his retirement in 1955. Milne was a pioneer in numerical analysis and computer mathematics and was known around the world for the "Milne method" of solving differential equations and for his three textbooks and many technical papers.
