“Gothic As A Living Style”

p 1 Holder Hall Before Classes Resume

Architect Ralph Adams Cram called Day and Klauder’s design for Holder Hall on the Princeton campus “the highest point in their authoritative interpretation of Gothic as a living style.” This vaulted passage is waiting for the students who will soon be adding life to Holder’s style. Classes begin on September 11. Opening exercises will be held in the Chapel on September 8. In “My Lost City,” Scott Fitzgerald remembers his former classmate Edmund Wilson, a New York literary light, once “the shy little scholar of Holder Court.” (Photo by Charles R. Plohn)
