Kahn Auditorium

This is attached to the new University of Michigan Biomedical Science Research Building. I included it because I saw the name as Kahn Auditorium. I was thinking this was dedicated to Mr. Albert Kahn since so many of the buildings on campus were designed by him.

Turns out is it named in honor of D. Dan Kahn and his wife Betty Kahn. He was the founder of Production Tool Supply of Warren Michigan and he made the gift after the death of his wife.

His son was a student at the university.

I'm not sure if this Kahn is related to the architect though.
