Phillips Brooks House was dedicated on January 23, 1900, the seventh anniversary of the death of Phillips Brooks. The idea of establishing a home for student religious societies had been in Phillips Brooks's mind and just before his death he suggested that such a building would be the best means of commemorating his life and perpetuating his influence at Harvard. Contributions for this memorial poured in from all parts of the country and in the fall of 1899 the building was completed. Since its opening the building has well served its purpose, as the centre of all philanthropic and religious work of the University.
