Trumbull College, Yale

Trumbull College, one of Yale University’s residential colleges, was named for Connecticut Governor Jonathan Trumbull. The building‘s Gothic architecture, by James Gamble Rogers, matches well with his design for neighboring Sterling Library. Rogers, who designed eight of Yale’s twelve residential collages, considered Trumbull College, modeled after King’s College, Cambridge, to be his masterpiece.

    Actually Rogers only designed 8. Calhoun is John Russell Pope, Morse + Stiles are Saarinen, and Silliman is Eggers + Higgins.
    Great blog.
