What are Johnson, Malone, & Weedon Houses Like?
Johnson, Malone, & Weedon Houses each contain four floors that provide air-conditioned single-and double-occupancy rooms (two-thirds are singles) opening onto a common hallway. Approximately 28 students live on each floor, sharing a common bathroom and two furnished lounges. These houses allow students to come together for socializing or studying, combining community living with the privacy of singles. An upperclass Resident Advisor lives on each floor.
How the Houses Got Their Names
Petersburg, Va. native Nathan Edward Johnson became the first black faculty member at the University of Virginia in 1967. He served as Associate Director of the School Desegregation Center at the University, and was instrumental in easing the desegregation process throughout the south.
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.
