Spaces and Faces: Namesakes at the University of Arkansas

Have you ever walked into Brough Commons and thought, “Who was Brough, anyway?”  Now you can find out that and more with the Spaces and Faces website and image collection, documenting buildings on campus and the men and women who inspired the names.

Simply click on a pin point, which represents a building on campus, on the map below to reveal historical information. Follow the link from the pop-up to get to the Spaces and Faces digital image collection where you will find photos of the people along with photos of their namesake buildings drawn from Special Collections.

Spaces and Faces is a continuing project, so look for more buildings and photos to be added.
