Myers House

Built in 1963, this building was known as Hall "I" until 1990, when it was renamed Myers House, in honor of the Myers Family.

Chester Myers was a prominent St. Louis industrialist and philanthropist who died in 1977. Washington University was named in his will as a recipient of $1.5 million in honor of his parents Emanuel and Lillie Myers. The will was held in trust until 1990.
