Ada Dodge Hall

Originally constructed in 1873, the Hall was reconstructed and enlarged in 1885 through a grant from Dr. D. Stuart Dodge first instructor of English at AUB, Treasurer, Secretary, and President of the University Board of Trustees. It was named in memory of his deceased daughter, Ada. The Hall was first used by the Preparatory Department (now lnternational College) until 1898. Since 1900 it was used as the administration building; and it was the original home of the School of Commerce until that School was moved to Plin Fisk Hall. During 1962-1963 it was reconstructed to house the main Cafeteria, a milk bar, faculty dining room and recreation rooms, as well as separate offices for the Economics Department.

Created by the Digital Documentation Center at AUB in collaboration with Al Mashriq of Høgskolen i Østfold, Norway.
