The Marconi Hotel hosted many of the greats of early wireless communications and was a stage for many celebrated groups and events.  One event that occurred in the Foyer on October 20, 1953 was heated arguments between Camp Evans officers and Senator Joseph McCarthy on his access to the base to find suspected communists and security violations in the secret radar laboratory.

The foyer was also a favorite place for group photos to mark service anniversaries and special achievement recognition.  The InfoAge WALL OF HONOR plaques are on display in the foyer.
