“Diaper Alley”

09 Sep

Never heard of Diaper Alley? Well, not many nowadays know of it, but it was quite something in its day. Diaper Alley was the fond nickname given to some temporary married student housing that once stood on campus. It was in the parking lots on the north side of Hartwell Hall, by the railroad tracks.

Back then the campus wasn’t anything like the size it is today; Hartwell was still the main building. With the GI Bill though student numbers were growing, and some of these WWII vets were married and had young families. So a temporary building was set up, and “Diaper Alley” was born! This building is long gone of course, but there are still some around who recall it, including one of our library retirees.
