Oberlin Local Customs: 8 reviews and 28 photos
When I attended Oberlin I had my big Biology lecture in Hall Auditorium, and labs and smaller classes were in Wright Zoo Lab or the Botany Building. Senior year, classes being held in a temporary annex to the gym (photo 5). By 1961, science classes were in Kettering Hall, and that's where they were when I went back for my 10 year reunion in 1969.
It was named for the late Charles F. "Boss" Kettering, renouned automotive engineer and inventor. The Charles F. Kettering Foundation gave $800,000, the largest single gift. But by 2004, Kettering Hall was passe.
The Class of 1904 Science Library and the eastern half of the building had been removed. The western half of the building, which housed the biology classrooms, laboratories, and offices was incorporated into the new Oberlin Science Center.
