Did you know . . .

As a testament to the Connecticut State Grange's contributions to the University of Connecticut, a hall was dedicated on the campus. It is appropriately named "Grange Hall." There was a mounting housing shortage on the Storrs campus in 1940 that was causing a great deal of concern to President Jorgensen. Earlier that year, the State Grange had established a scholarship at UConn which drew donations from each of the Pomona and Subordinate Granges in the state. During a coversation with State Master Sherman Ives, President Jorgensen asked how many members there were in Connecticut. He was told that there were 20,000. He then proposed the idea of each Grange member in the state donating $1 each with the college matching the 20,000 one dollar donations for the construction of a residence hall on campus to be called "Grange Hall."
