Dunster Hall and Little's Block, two private dormitories, have been purchased by the University. It is expected that Dunster, and perhaps Randolph, which became the property of the University over a year ago, will eventually become Sophomore dormitories. The buildings were made over to the University authorities by Robert H. McCurdy '81, of New York.
Dunster Hall, on Dunster Street, was built in the nineties and at the time was the finest private dormitory in the neighborhood of the University grounds. Little's Block is situated on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Dunster Street.
The 1918 tax valuations give Dunster Hall a value of $138,700, of which $38,700 is on the land. Little's Block has a tax value of $69,200, the land value being $41,500.
