It looks like they’re getting very close to starting work on the new building for the Shepherd School. (This building is called by a long acronym that I can’t recall right now, but it’s something that sounds like one of those Cold War treaty alliances.) The lot where I used to park is now completely fenced off (and I’m now back parking in the exact same place as I did when I first arrived as a graduate student 26 years ago):

As usual all this reminded me of something else. Standing in roughly the spot where the new building will go are (left to right) John Miner ’88, the late, lamented Shepherd School Dean Michael Hammond, George Miner ’50, a man I don’t recognize, and frequent commenter on this blog Marty Merritt ’85:
I believe this picture was taken at the groundbreaking of Alice Pratt Brown which would make it 1990, I think.
Bonus: A corner of the Miner Lounge in the RMC.
