Inscription.  On this site, at the Petroleum Refining Lab, chemists conducted the university's first major industry-sponsored research beginning in 1929. They improved the refining process of crude oil and pioneered in identifying its components. The lab was razed in 1958, but Penn State still ranks among America's top universities in industry-sponsored research.
