MSU Home :: Lappen, Warren
Beginning in 1919, he served the university as a baseball coach, history and political science instructor, mathematics teacher, director of Breckinridge Training School, academic dean, vice president, and interim president on two occasions. Because of the leadership of President Vaughan and he, the Navy’s presence helped MSU survive the strains of wartime rationing and low enrollments. He and W.H. “Honie” Rice laid the groundwork for the naval school. The science building, Lappin Hall, was built in 1937 and renamed in 1958 in his honor for his lifetime of service.
