The Tucker Hall Fire 80 Years Ago

On December 16, 1934, Tucker Memorial Hall, the first law school building at Washington and Lee, was destroyed in a conflagration witnessed by much of the city despite the late hour.


The archives has created an exhibit telling the story of the fire. It includes photos of the fire and press coverage in its immediate aftermath.  Also found here are official reactions by the university and correspondence of the Dean of the School of Law about this event.
