Theodorick Pryor Campbell
Campbell Hall was named for Theodorick Pryor Campbell, who worked at Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College and Polytechnic Institute (now Virginia Tech) from 1889 to 1924 as professor of modern languages, Academic Department head, dean of the general faculty, and dean of the college. Campbell also was appointed with another professor to serve jointly as the president on campus during the president's leave of absence.
Campbell Hall is composed of two wings: the west (or main) wing, originally known as Barracks No. 8 and completed in 1930, and the east wing, originally known as Barracks No. 9 and completed in 1940. It was known as the Stone Dormitory or Civilian Dormitory until it was named in 1952.
The building was closed at the end of fall 1966 for renovation, which was completed in 1968.
