Barringer Hall was named in 1962 for Dr. Paul B. Barringer, president from 1907 to 1913. Known affectionately as "Oom Paul" by the students, the medical doctor was a man ahead of his time. He built up the agriculture program, broadened the scope of the departments, and improved student accommodations. Unfortunately, he incurred the wrath of alumni, the engineering faculty, and others and resigned, returning to Charlottesville, Va., where he practiced medicine.
