Communications Building

 

The Communications Building was completed in 1970. This building houses faculty offices, classrooms, computer labs, the library, and art gallery. Perkins Library is in the southern portion of the lower level, and was made possible through gifts from the Kitty Perkins Charitable Trust and the estate of Lincoln attorney T.F.A. Williams. The Perkins family was originally from Hastings, and several members have attended Doane.  Rall Art Gallery is located in Perkins Library and was created in 1986. The gallery is named for Reinhold ’33 and Lillian Rall, and Leonard ’35 and Dorothy ’38 Rall, who provided funds for the project.  The building also houses Heckman Auditorium.  Named for Doane’s ninth President, Dr. Phil Heckman, the auditorium is the site of numerous musical performances, lectures and other events each year.
