Richard P. Chapman

Richard P. Chapman was a member of the Board of Trustees from 1939 to 1970, and its chairman from 1947 to 1964. Mr. Chapman was the Director of New England Merchants Bank and a trustee of many other institutions.

In 1964, Mr. Chapman was awarded as an Honorary Degree Recipient.

Richard P. Chapman had overseen much of the construction to Lower Campus, including Peacock Pond, so it was fitting that Lower Campus was named for him.
