History Originally constructed in 1949, Babson's pool was officially dedicated on November 10 of that year in honor of Colonel John E. Millea, former instructor in production and Dean of the Faculty who left Babson to fight in World War II. The pool was later renamed the Elizabeth Morse Swimming Center in honor of the mother of Richard M. Genius, whose generous gift to the College in 1988 helped refurbish the swimming facility. In addition, Mr. Genius' gift enabled the renovation of Millea Hall, which assumed the name of Colonel Millea.
