    Biographical/Historical note

    Roble Hall was the first women's dormitory at Stanford University, built in 1891 of Ransome reinforced concrete. It was renamed Sequoia Hall in 1918 and used as a men's dormitory; in 1957 it was reduced to a one-story building and used for academic offices. It was demolished in 1996 to make way for new science and engineering buildings.
