Abstract

Description

Hamilton Hall, one of the smallest Gothic dormitories, and one of the most charming, was designed by Day and Klauder and built in 1911 with funds donated by the Classes of 1884 and 1885. It commemorates John Hamilton, president of the provincial council and acting governor of the Province of New Jersey who granted the first charter of the College of New Jersey on October 22, 1746, and thus, as reads the inscription on the limestone tablet in the low archway near University Place, ``in the name of the King gave being to Princeton University.
