The development of electricity at Auburn is a lot more prevalent to the university than we think, or for that matter, are aware of.
Auburn University’s College of Engineering can take the credit for lighting up the campus and later, the town. Dunstan Hall, an engineering building on campus, is named after Arthur St. Charles Dunstan. Dunstan was an Auburn professor of electrical engineering in the early 1900s and was a key player in bringing light to the Deep South.
