Bartlett Hall History
The second women's residence hall, opened in 1958, this building was named for Dr. William I. Bartlett '25. He joined the faculty in 1927 and taught English. He later rose to become Head of the Department and Dean of the College. In 1953, driving home from teaching an evening class in Roanoke, Dr. Bartlett, stricken at the wheel of his car, pulled to the side of the road and collapsed. Police found him and detained him for four hours as "under the influence of intoxicants". When friends prevailed on a doctor to make a medical examination, the educator was at once hospitalized. He died the following day, the victim of a cerebral hemorrhage. The circumstances of his tragic death led to a revision of police methods in Roanoke. Dr. Bartlett was deeply admired by his students and respected by his peers.
