Ely-Pepper Hall, Baylor Female College

The school's name changed to Baylor College for Women in 1923. I believe that is Ely-Pepper Hall in the background.  It is no longer there.

Baylor Female College

Baylor Female College

Burt Hall - Burt Hall was built in 1920 and named for Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Burt, who donated the $100,000 needed to build the residence hall. Burt was architecturally ahead of its time when built.  The in-suite bath design was almost unheard of for college dorm facilities and was later copied by other college architects.  The three-story building was renovated in 1990 and houses 170 residents, making it the largest female hall on campus.

The fire which destroyed the Wilson Administration Building and Alma Reeves Chapel in 1964 on the campus of Mary Hardin-Baylor College in Belton, TX.  We were in church when someone came in and got the MHB president.  We all drove to the campus after church while they were still putting out the fire.

The Senior Bell used to sit on the porch of Ely Pepper Dormitory.  It was rung whenever a senior left the campus for the last time.
