Hall to Dr. Wilbert Greenfield.
Greenfield was president of John
son C. Smith University from 1973

become president of Virginia State
University in Petersburg.
“From its inception, Johnson C.
Smith University has believed that
having a healthy balance of aca
demic study and comfortable liv
ing arrangements, will help stu
dents grow, mature as adults and
enter positions of responsibility in
our society,” cited Johnson C. Smith
University president Robert L. Al
bright. “This belief was a major
focus of Dr. Greenfield’s admin
istration. Will understood the im
portant connection between a piece
of land and a lofty goal.”
Mr. J. F. Day, representing The
Duke Endowment, congratulated
Dr. Greenfield and praised the uni
versity for having the insight to
undertake such a project.
The three-story, 220-student capa
city residence center was made pos
sible through a $2 million gift
from The Duke Endowment. Odell
Associates of Charlotte designed the
47,500 square foot - “Y” shaped
facility. The construction was done
by F. N. Thompson, Inc.
Dr. Matthew J. Whitehead, chair
man of the board of trustees for
Johnson C. Smith, also participated
in the ceremonies and said, ‘‘It is
appropriate, just and right that we
name this new residence hall after
Dr. Greenfield. Afterall, it is
through his dreams and determina
tion that we are here today."

philosphy at the University of Ore
