- Named for Lillian R. Howell (1876-1958)—Lillian Howell was a good friend and faithful contributor to the University. After hearing Dr. Bob Jones Sr. preach on a radio broadcast from New York City, she began corresponding with him. She never visited the school, yet frequently contributed toward students' tuition payments. The donation of her estate provided the funds for the science building.
