How the Richardson Building got its name

Everyday, on your way up to the Law Library, you pass under the sign: Richardson Building (I pushed for the name "Thompson Towers", but Peter from Property Services wasn't convinced!).
Many people might know that Richardson was an early Chancellor of the University, but his contributions to Otago, and to the whole country were far more remarkable.
He is commemorated in the Foyer of his namesake, and I urge you to take a closer look.
