Where history is made

Undergrads have called McClellan Hall home for 93 years, but this fall the Old Campus building is full of faculty offices for the history department. The department, which oversees Yale College’s most popular major, had to vacate the Hall of Graduate Studies as it undergoes renovations to become the university’s hub for the humanities. Interestingly, McClellan Hall was the target of scorn and ire from the faculty when it was first proposed in 1924. An unnamed history professor told the Yale Daily News that "it is a mistake to try to put up a replica of Connecticut Hall, for another such building dating from 1924 would look like a very bad imitation.”
