Whitman College

Kimball Theatre in Hunter Conservatory

This restored 120-seat recital and lecture hall was named in honor of Ruth Baker Kimball ’31, who served the college as a distinguished volunteer for many years.

The blending of the old with the new was showcased during the inaugural Whitman Undergraduate Conference on April 6, 1999, when Hunter’s Kimball Theatre offered students a remarkable new venue in which to present their research projects in what became a signature program of Whitman’s liberal arts education.
