STATE OF DELAWARE
EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER THIRTY
TO: Heads of all State Departments and Agencies
SUBJECT: Change of Name of the State Building Formerly Known as Independence Mall to the "Thomas Collins Building"
WHEREAS, the State of Delaware has purchased the building known as Independence Mall, Dover, Delaware, for the use of state business by certain State agencies; and
WHEREAS, it has become necessary and desirable to rename the building now being used officially by certain State agencies in honor of a former distinguished Governor of Delaware from 1786 to 1789 who served the State of Delaware in all three branches of state government as well as the military; and
WHEREAS, it would be most appropriate to name this state building in keeping with the history of our State and the architecture of the Colonial period of said building:
NOW, THEREFORE, I. Charles L. Terry, Jr., by virtue of the authority vested in me, as Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby order, declare, and designate the name of the Independence Mall Building to be changed to and henceforth be known as the "Thomas Collins Building."
Approved this 7th day of August, 1967.
CHARLES L. TERRY, JR.
