LIFE SCIENCES BUILDING NAMED FOR DAVISON

Fred C. Davison, UGA’s 17th president and the man regarded as the architect of the University’s rise into the ranks of America’s top research institutions, will have a building named after him—the Fred C. Davison Life Sciences Complex.

Davison (DVM ’52), who was president from 1967-86, promoted the concept of a single facility to house UGA’s genetics and biochemistry programs, which had gained international stature. He helped plan and design the Life Sciences Building and was instrumental in obtaining state funding for its construction. Opened in 1991, the 257,000-square-foot building cost $32 million. At the time, it was the largest construction project in the history of the University System.

Davison (shown above with wife Dianne, DVM ’52) rose to dean of UGA’s College of Veterinary Medicine before being named president. He made scientific research a top priority of his administration. During his tenure, the University’s total budget grew five-fold, from $72.5 million to $370 million. The research budget soared from $15.6 million to more than $96 million. The faculty increased from 1,150 to 1,850.

Much of Davison’s research emphasis was focused on biotechnology, then a young and emerging field. Leading researchers recruited during his tenure include Norman Giles, a National Academy of Sciences member, who helped create UGA’s genetics department; and Peter Albersheim, whom Davison persuaded to move his entire laboratory from the University of Colorado to UGA.
