This Week in Temple History
October 18, 1984

    The Temple Times reported that two gateways to the University were renamed to honor former presidents. The dedication of Anderson Hall (formerly the Humanities Building) took place on Berks Mall at the eastern portal to the University, in honor of Paul R. Anderson, the fifth president. In addition, the dedication of Wachman Hall (on 1619 Walnut St., where the Center City campus was previously located) was carried out in honor of Marvin Wachman, the sixth president. In 1996, the Computer Activity Building on 1805 N. Broad St. was renamed Wachman Hall after a Board of Trustees decision that authorized the sale of its former location on 1619 Walnut St.
