In the fall of 1956, F&M students returned to campus to discover a new language laboratory in the attic area of Keiper Liberal Arts Building. Constructed at a cost of $20,000 and accommodating up to 105 students simultaneously, the new laboratory featured state-of-the-art broadcasting and recording equipment, allowing students the ability to hear and speak pre-recorded lessons in six different languages. Coordinated by Associate Professor of Greek Dr. Donald W. Prakken, the laboratory was based on three years of exploratory programming designed by F&M faculty from the Romance, German, and Classical language departments.
