Solar panels that will help power Northup Hall have been installed on the roof as part of the complete makeover of the historic building that includes a new name. The Board of Trustees voted to rename Northup in honor of longtime college trustee T.J. Day '71, the most significant donor in the history of the college. His lead gift set the stage for the current renovation of Northup, vacated seven years ago when the Jereld R. Nicholson Library opened. Linfield will continue to recognize the legacy of Emanuel Northup, beloved professor, dean and interim president of Linfield, and mayor of McMinnville. Plans for memorializing the Northup name include an exterior plaque with a history of the building and identification of Professor Northup, as well as the historical interior plaque on the fireplace mantel in the south reading room.
