Remark: This postcard is produced on tin. Science Hall was constructed in 1900 to house the Science Department. In 1959, the building was renamed Baldwin Hall in honor of Samantha "Mantie" Baldwin, who was a very influential and well regarded faculty member of the university prior to the its purchase by the Lutheran church. After the Department of Science moved to Neils Hall in 1967, Baldwin Hall housed the Art Department. The Art Department later moved to the University Center for the Arts in 1996; Baldwin Hall was razed the same year.
