Description:
Harrelson Hall, the first cylindrical building to ever be built on a university campus, was built in 1961. It is named after John William Harrelson (1885-1955), who was the first North Carolina State University alumnus to serve as chief executive of the University. He graduated in 1909 with a degree in mechanical engineering and was valedictorian of his class. In addition to serving as chief executive, he also taught in the mathematics department and as college archivist.
