McClellan Hall (South Quad)

McClellan Hall is one of four South Quad areas.


McClellan Hall was built in the 1960s and is named after an early trustee of the college, Irene Ward McClellan.  When the nursing school was founded in 1922, she established clinical training for the students at the Mary McClellan hospital in Cambridge, New York. She also served as a trustee from 1934 to 1952 and was awarded an honorary doctor of letters degree by the college in 1951 for her "lasting contribution to the vitality of this institution."
