NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: Thursday, January 30, 1964 Mrs. William G. Selby has presented a portrait of the late Paul H. Hanson, secretary to the administrative committee of the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, to New College for the Hanson Wing of the Selby Science center New College President, Dr. George F. Baughman, accepted the portrait on behalf of the college and then asked that the trust department of the Palmer First National Bank & Trust Co. hang the portrait in its offices until the Selby Center is constructed on the campus. Richard Hinze, vice-president and senior trust officer of the Palmer Bank, accepted the portrait of Hanson, who was vice-president and trust officer of the bank at his death, last January. The oil painting of Hanson was made from a photographic portrait by Hinze. Mrs. Hanson, Palmer Bank President Benton w. Powell, Executive Vice-president Homer Whitman and Trust Officer Richard Jackson participated in the brief ceremonies in the offices of the bank Monday. Dr. Baughman said that New college was most grateful to Mrs. Selby for her gift of the portrait, and he noted the esteem in which Hanson had been held by all who knew him. It was while Hanson was serving as an officer of the Selby Foundation that it was announced that a $500,000 gift would be made to New college to provide for the Selby Science Center. This was the first major gift announcement made by the college, on December 5, 1961. (more)


Hanson Portrait -page two Shortly after Hanson's death last year, Mrs. Selby made a special gift of $250,000 for the Hanson Wing of the Center. Dr. Baughman said that the portrait and the Hanson Wing represent the first major memorial to be part of the New college campus. He reported that architect I.M. Pei is now working on a master plan of the entire campus, which will include the specific location of the Center. Pei also will design the Center, which is expected to be completed by September 1966. 11The generosity of Mrs. Selby in making possible the Hanson Wing will allow students to study science with the most modern equipment and with the finest faculty we can bring together," said the president. "The spirit of interest in education that was so much a part of Paul H. Hanson will be recalled by all those who see this portrait in the structure that will bear his name." Hanson, Secretary of the Administrative Committee of the Foundation, was known for his personal attention to the students helped by grants or scholarships, as well as for his interest in all projects helped by foundation gifts. ##
