History

Beeson was constructed in 1937 and once housed faculty, later a particularly rambunctious group of young men, and even later the Office of University Housing. It now awaits renovation. Beeson was named for J. Luther Beeson, a gentle, scholarly professor of chemistry. He had served on the faculty since 1897 and following the sudden death of President Parks, rather reluctantly but capably took over the reins of governance from 1927 until 1934.
