Purchase of the Horace B. Shepard Property

On June 4, 1945 Mary McNally purchased the 51,101 sq. ft. of the Horace B. Shepard Property along Ave. Louis Pasteur for $50,000. It was transferred to the Emmanuel College Board of Trustees on August 22, 1945 and was to serve as the site of Alumnae Hall, the first construction project after the Administration Building. The new structure, designed by Charles Maginnis, served as the science center and housed the Physics, Biology, and Chemistry Departments after its dedication in November 1949.
