Butterfield—Then and Now
On November 6, Butterfield celebrated its reopening, after an 8-month closure for renovations. While students have been dining at Butterfield since the start of the semester, University officials, students and staff officially celebrated the reopening of the facility and all of the positive buzz surrounding the $12 million project, which also included expansion and improvements to the accompanying residence hall’s lounge and the addition of a patio.

I ate at Butterfield during my freshman year 1961.
Regarding your photo “Butterfield circa 1950” – The student in profile at the left-center of the photo is Geoffrey Sherwood. Geoff was my best friend and also a freshman in 1961. Great photo, but off by about 10 years.

Many thanks you for your comment Jack—and for setting us straight on the timing of the photo. Our Special Collections folks checked the date, and sure enough—1961. We changed the caption from 1950 to 1961. Thanks again!
