Constructed from 1937-39 in the Tudor Gothic style, this was the first men's dormitory on campus. It was designed by prominent Chicago/Indianapolis architect George Schreiber, best known for his Scottish Rite Cathedral in Indianapolis. The structure cost almost $400,000 to build and featured an ornate Jacobean interior, most of which remains intact.
Funds to build Elliott Hall were provided by the Ball family as a memorial to Frank Elliott Ball, who died in an airplane crash in 1936. Sealed in the cornerstone are a picture of him, a copy of his obituary, a Bible, an American flag, and a miniature airplane.
