In 1949, thousands of men were entering college on the G.I. Bill. Consequently, Boston University bought this building, the historic Myles Standish Hotel, and converted it into the University’s first ever large residence hall for men.
This building cherishes a wonderful history. Babe Ruth, the Great Bambino, once lived here. And, according to John Bustamante, roommate of Martin Luther King, Jr., a young King had an early meeting with a young music student named Coretta, at a gathering of gospel choirs on the first floor.
