Peterson Hall -- McGill Archives

Peterson Hall was built by J. Cecil McDougall, a colleague of Harold Fetherstonhaugh, in 1933 to house the Protestant School Board. This three-storey, white, concrete structure, located on McTavish Street, has a stone exterior which features carvings and inscriptions related to education. It was purchased by McGill in 1960 to provide a space for the Department of French Language and Literature and still serves this function today. The building was renamed Peterson Hall after Sir William Peterson, principal of the University from 1895 through World War I to 1919. All of the language departments greatly benefit from the language labs in the basement of Peterson Hall.
