    Location of former Harford Hall

    In spring 2020, the Class of 2020 was granted the opportunity to re-name Harford Hall in honor of an outstanding member of the Washington College community. They selected Thomas E. Morris ’62,  the first Black graduate of Washington College who began his freshman year just four years after Brown v. Board of Education and graduated before the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1962. Please join us for the building dedication ceremony and reception afterward (outdoors, weather permitting). No RSVP required.
