Corwin Hall, the red brick building east of the Woodrow
Wilson School, formerly stood where Robertson Hall is now located.
When Princeton recruited architect Minoru Yamasaki to build the
new home for the Wilson School, he insisted on having the corner
location for his monumental building. So,
in 1963 Corwin Hall was moved on rails almost 200 feet
to make room for the new structure.
