Construction workers from Spirtas Wrecking Co. continue to tear down Stafford Hall. The residence hall was named after MU graduate Richard Yeater Stafford. Stafford was killed at Guadalcanal where he was serving as a captain in the Marine Corps during World War II. In 1943 a U.S. Navy destroyer was also named after Stafford.
