    Biographical / Historical

    Wilbur Hall is a residence complex on the Stanford University campus, consisting of eight named houses. Wilbur Hall is named for Ray Lyman Wilbur, a Stanford alumnus, who served as dean of the Stanford School of Medicine, third Stanford president (1916-1943), and chancellor. As with Stern Hall, Wilbur was built following World War II and moved away from the arches and intricacies that characterized the rest of Stanford campus. Each house in Wilbur is named for a Spanish word. Though originally designed as an all-men’s residence, the complex has been co-ed for several decades.
