Reed College was founded in 1912 and based its development and growth on a historic master plan designed by A.E. Doyle, a significant American Architect. This master plan located two buildings, Eliot Hall and The Dormitory Building. A "great lawn" area in front of the buildings now compliments their location. This open space has become a significant architectural feature that defines the campus and is used for many recreational, social, and formal events, including commencement.
