- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
Jon W. ( Jack) Fultz B’76 won the Boston Marathon in 1976. The run-for-the-hoses, as the marathon became known, was held in 100-plus degree temperatures on April 19. Fewer than 40 percent of the 1,898 starters completed the race but Fultz was able to maintain his rhythm and survive the oppressive conditions. Taking over the lead with six miles to go, he crossed the finish line in a time of 2:20:19 and became only the fifth American to win the race since World War II.
