HISTORICAL SKETCH

During the mid-1960s and 70s, her in-laws, Joe and Ruth Patty, bought the plot and erected the building, which they leased to the University as supplemental housing due to a lack of male dormitory space. Gwen and her late husband, Jack ‘53, who formerly served as Dean of Students, helped the houseparent Pattys care for the building, which was dubbed Patty Hall at the time. The space later became women’s housing and was eventually sold and converted to apartments.
