New East Residence Hall To Be Named After Former PA Governor Edward Martin

The Penn State Board of Trustees approved the naming of a new East Halls dorm currently under construction at its meeting September 15.

The residence hall — like all other dorms in East Halls — will be named after a former governor of Pennsylvania. This time, the new residence hall will be named after Edward Martin, Pennsylvania’s 32nd governor.

Martin was a lawyer from Waynesburg, PA and a politician in the Republican Party. He served as the Governor of Pennsylvania from 1943 to 1947 and then as a United States Senator from 1947 to 1959.

Martin graduated from Waynesburg College and continued to practice law in the town. He also served in the Spanish-American War, the Mexican-Border Expedition, and in the First and Second World Wars.

The dorm — a seven-story building that will be constructed in the space across from the tennis courts and bus stop — is expected to be completed in the fall of 2018.
