Dedicated in 1901 and designed by Stanford White, the hall of fame honors prominent Americans who have had a significant impact on the nation's history. It was created during the construction of New York University's undergraduate college campus, which is now home to Bronx Community College. The hall of fame's principal feature is a sweeping, semi-circular colonnade that displays the bronze portrait busts of the honorees and links Gould Memorial Library, the Hall of Languages, and the Cornelius Baker Hall of Philosophy.
