Inventor Buckminister Fuller spoke at Coffman Union for Earth Week 1972. Attendance at his speech was so high students spilled out onto the mall. Fuller invented geodesic domes, which are energy efficient building structures. A geodesic dome (featured in this photo) was constructed on campus for him (according to Ed Finale, a man who helped organize Earth Week 1972 as a student).
