Boggs Center for Energy and Biotechnology

Boggs Center for Energy and Biotechnology building was constructed in 1987 and designed by architects Waldemar S. Nelson and John Desmond and Associates. Its design makes reference to architectural elements used in the older campus buildings, but simplifies the detail and omits the middle scale elements. It houses the School of
Engineering and 27 state of the art laboratories.

The building is named in honor of Corinne “Lindy” Claiborne Boggs, graduate of Newcomb College. Boggs was the first woman from Louisiana to be elected to the U.S. House; elected to her late husband Hale Boggs’ U.S. House of Representative seat after his death in 1972.
