More than just a floor

House History

John Nielsen (1943-1964) had just completed his term of office as president of the Men’s Residence Association when he was killed in a car accident on January 21, 1964. He had matured greatly while president and the fact that the men of the M.R.A. requested that a house be named for him shows the respect they had for him.
