Biographical/Historical note

Washington State College's Waller Hall opened in fall term of 1935 as the New Men's Dormitory, and was named in honor of former college Vice President Osmar Waller at the end of that year. It was expanded in 1957 by the addition of a fourth floor on each wing. It remained a men's dormitory for 80 years until closing at the end of spring term, 2015.

Scope and Contents note

The collection consists of loose records relating to Waller Hall, as well as scrapbooks and loose photographs and slides. These were retained and managed by various students over a number of decades, and so the accumulation of materials was somewhat haphazard. Two scrapbooks received with the others were so deteriorated that they had to be dismantled, and those photographs are now interfiled in the loose photographs series.

Arrangement note

Waller Hall papers and records comprise a first series, organized alphabetically by subject, with a few short chronological subseries within that. Following those are two chronological series: loose photographs and then loose slides. Concluding the collection are several scrapbooks and a few oversized items; the scrapbooks are ordered chronologically, and the other oversized items are placed with the scrapbooks so as to efficiently fit and store them.
