Bon Appétit announces winning name of Tinkham Veale University Center restaurant

Bon Appétit Management Co. is pleased to announce the restaurant at the Case Western Reserve University Tinkham Veale University Center will be named “Michelson and Morley.”

The winning name was submitted by Case Western Reserve student, Jacob Campbell, and honors the Michelson-Morley experiment that took place in 1887 here at the Case School of Applied Science and nearby Western Reserve College. This collaboration resulted in the awarding of the Nobel Prize in physics to Albert Michelson in 1907 and the results initiated a line of research that eventually led to Einstein’s theory of relativity.

Bon Appétit plans to honor this experiment with a plaque near the entrance to the restaurant which will be dedicated in the future.
