Inscription.

Fiske Hall was the menís dormitory of Fairmount College from 1906 to 1926 and served as an army barracks in both World Wars. Beginning with the municipal university period in 1926, Fiske provided classroom and office space for various academic and administrative units, including two presidents. From 1930 to 1956, it was the “music building.” Since 1956 it has been home to the history and philosophy departments of the Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
