ula Washingtonia Founded 1832 N the rooms of the Washington Literary Society may be seen a photograph of the old Germantown Manual Labor Academy, the birthplace of the Society. When Rev. George Junkin, D.D., became the President of Lafayette College, several members of the old Philomathean Society accompanied him from German- town to Easton and became the nucleus of the new society. Washington Literary Society for forty-seven years had its rooms in old South College. In 1881 the Society took up its present location in the West Wing of Pardee Hall. The arrangement and finishing of the rooms was in charge of Prof. David B. King, and six thousand dollars were expended on the furnishings. In 1897, when Pardee Hall was burned, the rooms were completely destroyed. Upon the restoration of Pardee Hall, the former location was resumed and the rooms furnished according to the original scheme. The auditorium is linished in maroon and the windows are draped with heavy maroon curtains. Luxurious Smyrna rugs cover the Hoor. The chandeliers are of heavy, oxidized silver, and the woodwork is the finest quartered oak. Over the President's chair is a beautiful canopy of silk curtains. The arrangement of seats is in the English Parliamentary style. The library is one of the most beautiful rooms in connection with the college. It is furnished in the same lavish style as the auditorium, dark green being the prevailing color. The library is well stocked with all the standard works of poetry and prose, including an excellent collection of modern fiction. Washington Hall is proud of its history and of the prominent men who have gone out from it, and excellent work is being done by its members in the active society. ' 245
