A University of Maine campus building will no longer be named for a 1920s university president who was also a known eugenicist and tobacco industry spokesperson. University of Maine System trustees voted Monday to rename Clarence Cook Little Hall, following the June recommendation of a 10-person task force formed in response to a student petition. Little served as president of UMaine from 1922 to 1925, and Little Hall was named after him in 1966. Little brought more funding to UMaine than any previous president, and he went on to start The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor in 1929.
