Biographical / Historical

Chi Phi (also known as York Hall and the Omicron Trust Association) was established by Yale Sheffield Scientific School students in 1878. In 1897 they built a Venetian-palace-type house on the corner of Wall and College streets. The building (Stoeckel Hall), which Yale assumed ownership of in 1935, is now part of the Music School. The society disbanded in 1963.
