Description:
Caldwell Hall, built in 1981, is named after John Tyler Caldwell (1911- ) who served as chancellor of the University from 1959-1975. During his administration the B.A. degree was authorized and total enrollment grew by over 10,000 students. He received an honorary degree from NC State upon his retirement in 1975. In 1962, he served as president of the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges. Caldwell Hall is connected to Winston Hall and Tompkins Hall. Tompkins Hall is named for Daniel Augustus Tompkins who pushed for the College of Textiles and designed the building that now holds his name. The original hall was built in 1901 but destroyed by fire in 1914. It was rebuilt the same year.
