Trumbull College library

Harkness Tower with the word "Sample" printed over itThe Trumbull College library was an oasis of peace and quiet amid the hustle and bustle of Yale, where I could have uninterrupted time to think, read, study and write (I can still vividly remember reading Joyce’s Ulysses there, over a three day period, during sophomore year). It was located above the Trumbull common room leading into the dining hall, with a full wall of windows looking down onto the dining hall. It was a small library, but there are those of us Bullmen in the class of ’70 who loved it.
