The new building is just south of the College of Pharmacy’s current home, built with Skaggs’ money in 1965, and which he asked to be named after his father.
"Through Mr. Skaggs’ contributions, the College of Pharmacy has been able to excel in pharmacy research and education," U. pharmacy dean Chris Ireland said in a statement. "Our college is forever indebted to the Skaggs family and hope we can carry forward the legacy of Sam Skaggs."
Funeral services are pending.
