    Biographical/Historical note

    As of 2012, Branner Hall is an upperclass (non-frosh) residence with a focus program on public service. In previous years, Branner Hall was an all-freshman dormitory. Opened in January 1924, Branner Hall was named after John Caspar Branner, Stanford’s first professor, second president (1913-1915), and Chair of the Department of Geology and Mining. The elegant building was designed by the San Francisco firm of Bakewell & Brown, who also designed Memorial Auditorium and the original Bing Wing of Green Library.
