How the Houses Got Their Names

Dumas Malone was born in Mississippi and first joined the University faculty in 1923. After posts at Harvard and Columbia from the 1930s to 1950s, he returned to the University as biographer in residence in 1962. He spent nearly 40 years writing his six-volume Jefferson biography, for which he received the Pulitzer Price in 1975.

William Stone Weedon of Delaware came to the University in 1929 as a mathematics instructor, later chairing the philosophy department. Appointed a University professor in 1963, he taught various areas including engineering and architecture. He was awarded the Bronze Star in World War II for his work breaking Japanese code.
