The man whose generosity launched the GW Virginia Science and Technology Campus has died. Philanthropist and GW Trustee Emeritus Robert H. Smith, who died in December at age 81, donated the first 50 acres for the campus. He had envisioned a development in Loudoun County anchored by a university. He approached The George Washington University to be that university.

In 1990, when Smith was president of Charles E. Smith Construction Inc. and general partner of Washington Engineering Associates, he presented Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, then president of GW, with the landmark gift. This land was part of a 576-acre tract know as North Bles Farm. Exploration Hall opened to students in the fall of 1991.
