Varsity Hall: The Infirmary at the University of Virginia
Christmas, William A.; Turner, James C.
Journal of American College Health, v57 n3 p349-351 Nov-Dec 2008
In the past 5 years, an important treasure for the field of college health was rediscovered and has been completely renovated. It is the original student infirmary, now called Varsity Hall, at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Varsity Hall is a significant rediscovery for those who are interested in the history of college health. This article traces the history surrounding the Varsity Hall. The authors believe that it is likely one of the first buildings dedicated to the provision of health care to college students, and is certainly one of the oldest surviving college infirmary buildings in the United States. (Contains a photo of Varsity Hall as the Delta Tau Delta Fraternity House, circa 1910.)
