Building History

Google Maps

Completed in 1960 and dedicated in 1962, this building was originally known as the Physics-Chemistry Building. It was named for Willibald Weniger in 1966, the same year that a sixth floor was added. Weniger came to Oregon Agricultural College in 1908 from the University of Wisconsin to organize and head the physics department. Weniger invented a translucent blackboard and a typewriter attachment for typing Greek letters and mathematical symbols.
