Pollock House

History of the Pollock House

This Mediterranean Revival style house was built in 1920 for Oshkosh industrialist William E. Pollock, one of the early leaders of the company that would become OshKosh B’Gosh. In 1943, Pollock donated the house to the Oshkosh State Teachers College. Used as a dormitory from 1945 until 1967, the house was occupied by the administrative offices of the newly formed College of Nursing (CON) from 1967-70. When the CON moved into the “new” Nursing/Education building, the Alumni Association began to call Pollock House their home. Thousands of alumni, students, faculty, and visitors have attended functions at this campus landmark. Visitors have included former President Jimmy Carter, former United Nations Ambassador Jean Kirkpatrick and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Edward Albee. In Spring 2014, after 44 years of residency, the Alumni Association moved from Pollock to the newest building on campus, the Alumni Welcome and Conference Center (AWCC).
