Fountain Hall is named after Charles P. Fountain and was constructed in 1939. Mr. Fountain served as head of the Department of English from 1904 until his death in 1921. Dr. Fountain administered the Student Loan Fund through which hundreds of students could obtain money which defrayed their college expenses. During World War I he spearheaded fundraising for the Red Cross, however, his most impressive fundraising undertaking was for the eventual erection of the Y.M.C.A. Building on campus.
