Houston Hall was named for a very young man--Henry Howard Houston, Jr., Class of 1878. His trustee father and his mother, Sallie S. Houston, set a high value on the extracurricular in college life, and when their son died in the spring of 1879 (in Rome, from complications associated with typhoid fever), their gift to his memory was to help create the nation's first student union. The young Houston's portrait (detail above) now hangs in Bodek Lounge. At right: a gargoyle from the north facade.
