Pearson Scholarship Hall

(PEAR)
1426 Alumni Place Lawrence, KS 66044

Raymond Coolidge, a 1924 graduate and former Kansas state architect, designed this brick scholarship hall. It houses men in two-person suites and opened in fall 1952; a renovation was completed in 1992.

The hall is named for Joseph R. Pearson (1880-1955), who with his wife, Gertrude Sellards Pearson (1880-1968), a 1901 alumna, donated $200,000 in June 1945 for five residence and scholarship halls.
