Homewood's Decker Quad to be dedicated this
The new Alonzo G. and Virginia G. Decker Quadrangle on the
Homewood campus will be officially
dedicated on Saturday night at an invitation-only event for more
than 600 guests.
The $77 million project includes Mason Hall, a visitor
center and home of Undergraduate
Admissions; the Computational Science and Engineering Building,
an interdisciplinary research building;
and the 604-space underground South Garage.
Honored guests include:
Virginia Decker, widow of Alonzo Decker Jr., the
longtime chairman and CEO of Black &
Decker and former JHU trustee. Decker Quadrangle is named in
honor of their service to and support
of the university over decades. That support includes proceeds
from the sale of Alonzo Decker's final
gift, a bequest of the couple's home and farm on Maryland's
Eastern Shore, that helped fund
Raymond A. "Chip" and Rand Mason. Chip Mason,
chairman, president and CEO of Legg
Mason, has been a trustee of the university since 1987 and this
year completed a six-year term as
chair of the board of trustees. The couple's gift made possible
the construction of Mason Hall.
