Padour-Walker Administration Building

Padour Walker

 

Padour Walker Administration Building was dedicated in 1972 as a replacement for Merrill Hall, which was destroyed by fire in 1969.  Built just west of the Merrill site, it houses administrative offices, a conference room, and Noyce Chapel. The chapel is located in the lower level, and was dedicated in the spring of 1975 in memory of Ralph B. Noyce ’15 by his family. Funding for the building was provided by Edson O. Walker in honor of his wife, Ida Padour ’15. An interior renovation in 1999 was funded by former trustee Alfred Martin and the Martin Foundation.
