The George V. Meehan Auditorium
Meehan Auditorium
is a 3,059-seat hockey arena, in Providence, Rhode Island. The arena opened in 1961 and was dedicated on January 6, 1962. On September 28, 1964, at the same time that he was campaigning to stay in office, U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson addressed the bicentennial convocation of Brown University
Brown University
at Meehan, in favor of educational opportunity, freedom of conscience and the proposed National Endowment for the Humanities.[1] It is named for George V. Meehan, the benefactor of the arena, which he hoped would "service and promote" the Brown Bears
