What Plymouth State University is calling the The Raymond S. Burton ’62 Open Laboratory  is a computer-enhanced meeting and study space.

Plymouth State officials say the new space is indicative of the university’s fresh focus on interdisciplinary studies and partnerships with local businesses.

The new center is being funded by Duane Baxter and Reta Presby, lifelong friends of Burton’s. Governor Maggie Hassan will be on hand to dedicate the new facility, as will several North Country politicians, including Dalton State Senator Jeff Woodburn, a former participant in Burton’s long-running internship program.
