The JOURNALISM BUILDING, an annex of McClure Hall, contains the school of journalism and the editorial offices of the Oregon Daily Emerald, campus newspaper.

Allen Hall consists of three parts shaped into a cohesive whole: the original Journalism Building (1923), a 1954 addition, and a 2012 addition and renovation.

  • Journalism Building (1923). Architect: Lawrence and Holford. Contractors: Thomas Muir (General), Rushlight and Hastorf (Plumbing), Yundt and Keyser (heating), E. L. Knight (wiring).
  • Allen Hall (1954). Architect: Church, Newberry and Roehr.
  • Renovations (2000). Architect: Boucher Mouchka Larson Architects. Landscape Architect: Cameron McCarthy Gilbert. Planner: Chris Ramey. Manager: Alex Gordon. Renovations of the 1920s Allen Hall, begun in the 1990s, included interior work as well as a new entrance plaza.
  • Renovations (2010-2012). Architect: TBG Architects + Planners; YGH Architecture. General contractor: Lease Crutcher Lewis. ~source

The original McClure Hall was demolished make way for a new journalism building but the McLure Annex remains. Allen Hall was named for Eric Allen, first dean of the School of Journalism.

Below is a screenshot from Google Earth to show the original Journalism Building which was undergoing renovation in 2010-12. I believe the east facade of the original annex can still be seen today after the renovation.
