Farber Hall


Sidney Farber Hall is now part of the Cary-Farber-Sherman Complex. Built in the 1950's as the Medical-Dental Building, it was subsequently named for Samuel P. Capen (his name went to a building on the North Campus in the 1970's). Its construction allowed the medical and dental schools to move from their downtown locations.
