The board of trustees voted to acquire 1000 White Avenue, the former Tysaman Machine Company building, at its fall 1964 meeting. A gift-purchase arrangement was devised through which $39,000 of the cost was a gift (Tysaman issued notes to UT), and $100,000 was paid by UT over a five-year period. The 50,000-square-foot facility was renovated and housed MTAS, which moved from the College of Law Building; the State Testing Service; and the new UT Central Food Services Division, including the UT Bakery. Knoxville International Energy Exposition (KIEE) acquired 1000 White Avenue as one of the first properties for the site of the 1982 World’s Fair. UT vacated the property in 1979.
