Peggy Lee Hahn
The garden and pavilion honor the memory of Peggy Lee Hahn, wife of President-emeritus T. Marshall Hahn Jr., and recognizes her love of gardening and her outstanding service as first lady from 1962 to 1974. The late Mrs. Hahn's talent for entertaining and maintaining relationships with university stakeholders helped make it possible for her husband to transform the university from a college into a major research university. She was a generous benefactor to the university.
