Metcalf Research Laboratory

Metcalf Research Laboratory was dedicated in December 1938 with a three-day symposium on intermolecular action sponsored by the Division of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society. The new laboratory, financed by Jesse H. Metcalf’s gift of $500,000 followed by his second gift of $45,000, was built adjoining at a right angle the undergraduate Metcalf Chemical Laboratory.
