On this day in 1965 the Auburn Globe reported two more faculties joining the College out of a planned total of 45, and also announced the opening of bids for construction of the science-technology complex.

Both Dr. Gerald Miller and Philip A. Heft joined the mathematics department. Miller, from Seattle, had also worked at the University of Washington and as a geologist for a mining company. Heft came from Lakes High School at a time that Lakes High School was still in Tacoma.

The Globe reported that bids would open at 2 p.m. that day and noted that the design and construction was intended to be phased so as to disturb ''as little as possible the natural beauty of the wooded campus."
