The What's in a Name? project reflects on the people after whom several buildings on campus were named.
From its founding and throughout its development, many of Canada’s foremost builders, politicians, business leaders, scientists, and custodians of culture have influenced Carleton College and University by investing themselves in its development. The buildings bearing their names stand as memorials to each individual’s contributions. In this sense, just as these leaders shaped Carleton’s intellectual landscape, so the physical layout of campus reflects the impact of these influential Canadians on the University.
