Gates 1 p.m. dedication moved inside; to be televised
STANFORD -- Due to heavy rains and gusty winds forecast for Tuesday, Jan. 30, the outdoor public ceremony to dedicate the Gates Computer Science Building at Stanford has been canceled.
Instead, a private ceremony will be held inside the Gates building at 1 p.m., prior to an invitation-only academic symposium featuring William Gates, chairman and chief executive officer of Microsoft Corp., and Professor Raj Reddy of Carnegie Mellon University.
The building will be closed except to those with invitations to the symposium.
Both the dedication ceremony and symposium will be broadcast via closed-circuit television to Terman, Thornton and Skilling auditoriums. People on campus can also watch the proceedings live on Channel 51.
Scheduled to make dedication remarks are President Gerhard Casper; John Freidenrich, chairman of the Board of Trustees; James Gibbons, dean of the School of Engineering; and John Hennessy, chairman of the Computer Science department.
