Building History: 

Before Cowles dining hall opened at the end of World War II, the North Campus dining hall was in the basement of Langan Hall. The kitchens were adjoining, in the basement of Smith Hall.

Langan Hall was home to Gary Cooper ’26, who used his given name, Frank, while a student at Grinnell.

W.H. Langan, the Des Moines businessman for whom the building was named, never attended Grinnell but was generous to the College.
