Significance: Built as a privately owned student dormitory for New Yorker John Albro Little. Acquired by Harvard University at Little's death in 1918, and renamed Dudley Hall in 1930. A particularly fine illustration of the privately financed, prestige residential quarters of wealthy Harvard undergraduates of a less democratic era, and the work of the Boston architectural firm of Little, Browne and Moore, the senior partner of which, Arthur Little, is a figure of some interest to students of American architecture.
Survey number: HABS MA-818
