Bostwick

Bostwick Residence Hall

Bostwick Residence Hall, an original Reynolda Campus building, is named for Jabez Abel Bostwick, a New York City benefactor known as the father of the Wake Forest endowment. A business partner of the Rockefellers, Bostwick was the Treasurer of the Standard Oil Trust and CEO of two major railroads in New England, which are represented on the crest by the locomotive. He was drawn to Wake Forest College by its Baptist affiliation and by the personal appeal of President Charles Elisha Taylor. In 1885, Taylor cold-called New York’s elite and found an attentive ear in Bostwick, who left $1.5 million to the school in his will in 1923.

Famous Alumni: Michelle Sikes (’07), an All-American distance runner and a Rhodes Scholar.
