As part of the Institute's commitment to remove from campus buildings, assets, and honors the names of individuals who participated in the eugenics movement, Caltech has renamed the former Linde + Robinson Laboratory as the Ronald and Maxine Linde Laboratory for Global Environmental Science. The name change is effective today, August 2, 2021. This is the first in a series of renamings that were authorized by the Caltech Board of Trustees in early 2021 to bring campus memorializations in line with Institute values. The legal process to change the names on the remaining buildings, assets, and honors is underway; additional updates will be provided when appropriate.
