This temporary metal building was erected in 1966 to provide additional classroom space. It is scheduled for demolition within the next few years or so the story goes. With the limited amount of building space, it proves very difficult to part with such structures.
Edward Goodrich Acheson (1856-1931) was a successful independant
inventor and industrialist who originally worked for Thomas Edison.
Acheson invented silicon carbide which he called "carborundum". He
then brought an electrochemical company in 1895 to Niagara Falls
called Carborundum, Inc. which is still in business today.
