The name of a former board member of Michigan State University will be removed from the school's human resources building after he was discovered to be a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
The Board of Trustees will vote to remove Stephen Nisbet's name at their meeting on Sept. 11, according to a resolution posted on the website.
According to the resolution, the building will be renamed to 1407 South Harrison for the time being until a new name is decided.
The building was named after Nisbet in 1974 as a "testament to his dedication to the betterment of the State of Michigan."
He was a school principal, a superintendent, president of the Michigan Education Association, a member of the State Board of Education, a member of the Board of Trustees, a member of Alma College's Board of Trustees and an executive with Gerber Products Company.
Per the resolution, Nisbet was identified as a member of the KKK in the book "Everyday Klansfolk" by Craig Fox; he was reportedly a member of the Newago County chapter of the KKK in the 1920s.
