Building no. 84. Constructed in 1867.
This building was named for A. A. Champion, well-known historian and TSC Board of Trustee from 1968-74. Mr. Champion helped government officials locate the exact location of the Palo Alto Battle Site.
The building presently serves as offices for the Vice President of External Affairs and Dean of Graduate Studies. It was built around 1870. William C. Gorgas most likely worked in this building.
Fort Brown Post Records designate it as a Medical Supply & Detention Barracks in 1936 and Medical Offices, Lab & Isolation Wards in 1942. It was once the physics lab for the college. Later it was used by the Financial Aid office.
