Mary Ward Hall
Named after the Dean of Women at San Francisco State University; Mary A. Ward was instrumental in developing student clubs, the University newspaper, and convincing other members of the campus administration that residence halls were needed at SF State University. Mary was also the only woman president SF State has ever had. She died in 1957 after forty four years of faithful service.
Mary Park Hall
Named in honor of Mary Park (1914-2002), SF State University renamed Merced Hall, a facility that houses 410 freshmen and sophomores, in 1981, the year she retired. During her thirty years of exemplary service to San Francisco State University Residence Halls, Mary trained a small army of student custodians who learned the values of work and pay for work well done. She was justifiably proud of those she trained and who have since graduated and succeeded in their chosen professions. Mary's job was to care for the buildings and in doing so she cared for the students who lived in them.
