UMM Holds Dedication Ceremony for Crandlemire Support Building
MACHIAS, Maine – More than 75 people gathered for the dedication of the Crandlemire Support Building at the University of Maine at Machias on Friday, May 17. The maintenance and support facility was renamed in memory of Donald Crandlemire, UMM's first director of physical plant.
Crandlemire served as director of physical plant from 1973 to 1996, during a period of significant expansion of campus facilities. During his 23-year career at UMM, Crandlemire oversaw construction of the facility that now bears his name, as well as the Science Building, and the transformation of the old gymnasium in Powers Hall into the 364-seat Performing Arts Center.
