Yale will rename Calhoun College to honor ‘trailblazing’ alum Grace Murray Hopper

NEW HAVEN >> Yale University’s Calhoun College will be renamed to honor…

Calhoun, an 1804 Yale graduate, served as vice president of the United States and as a U.S. senator, but left a legacy of virulent white supremacy, calling slavery “a positive good” for African Americans.
He was the first to be honored when Yale introduced residential colleges, modeled after those in English universities.
