New Buildings of Our Time

Aerial View, 1965


Completed in 1966, the King Memorial Building was named in honor of Oberlin's President Henry Churchill King. 

Seen here are exteriors of some of the eight Program Houses which were completed in 1968. These dormitories included Lord and Saunders (which became Afrikan Heritage House in 1972), Bailey (French House), Barnard (substance-free), Harvey (Spanish House), Kade (German House), Price (now Third World House), and Zechiel (undesignated).
