Ceremonies at the University of Missouri-Columbia today will honor the memory of Governor Mel Carnahan. The south quadrangle, which is between the law school and the alumni center, will be named for him. Carnahan was a graduate of the University’s law school. He was killed almost three years ago in a plane crash, about three months before his second term as Governor would have ended. The University’s north quadrangle is named for former Governor David Francis, who opposed efforts to move the school out of Columbia after its administration building burned down in the 1890s.
