    If this building was built in 1911, then Hook would have been with Rogers, as Hook and Sawyer parted in 1905.  This building was built after Hook designed Jarvis Dormitory at East Carolina University which has similar dormers.  Duke built their Jarvis soon after this one, but it wasn't until 1960 that ECU built an Aycock Dormitory.  I wonder how many NC schools have Jarvis, Aycock and Belk Halls?
