The twin dormitories, Crothers Hall and Crothers Memorial Hall, were built seven years apart, in 1948 and 1955, respectively, sharing a common courtyard. Crothers Memorial historically housed graduate students in engineering, while Crothers accommodated graduate students in law. Spencer and Ambrose, Architects, were the architects of both structures; Eldridge T. Spencer (1893-1978) served the Campus Architect for Stanford during the 1950s.

In recent years, engineering students occupied Crothers Memorial Hall.
