Dates of existence

[ca. 1950s]


Falconer Hall housed the offices of the women’s Physical Education faculty and one or two seminar rooms for physical education. In addition to “common rooms” for university students, accommodation was also available for 6-8 graduate women students.
Miss Zerada Slack, Director of Women’s Physical Education and Athletics, was also named Director of Falconer Hall and this for the next nine years, Miss Slack assumed the very strenuous four-fold burden as the Director of Physical Education, Director of Athletics, Director of Falconer Hall and from 1956 to 1959, total responsibility for planning the new Benson Building.
Even though the President announced that the Falconer Hall Committee was to be separate from the “Women’s Building Advisory Committee”, the majority of the members served on both committees. Miss Marie Parkes had served since the early 1920’s.
