Forsyth, Forlorn

Older Bostonians might be familiar with the Forsyth Dental Institute, formerly located on the Northeastern Campus. Decades ago, the Forsyth Institute provided dental care to over half a million disadvantaged Boston Children, and recently has renewed the program even as the mission of the Institute has changed to focus on dental disease research. Two years ago (I think), the Institute moved to new swanky digs in Cambridge (I’ve visited and can vouch for said swankiness). To date, Northeastern University hasn’t put the building to use, so it’s looking a bit lonely:

I wonder, if they find a new use for the building, if they’ll remove the name?

  1. Is/was Forsyth part of Northeastern (I graduated NU in 1974)?
