Harvard Memorial Hall (, Massachusetts)


A Hall of Harvard Alumni was proposed in 1865 to commemorate the Harvard graduates who fought for the Union during the Civil War. It was intended as "a symbol of Boston's commitment to the Unionist cause and the abolitionist movement in America', but also served a practical function-- to provide a theatre and a gathering space for visiting alumni. The final outcome of the project encompasses Sanders Theatre, Annenberg Hall, the Memorial Transept and Loker Commons, and home of the Cambridge Queen's Head Pub.
