Charles H. Grosvenor

Grosvenor (pronounced "Grovener" — the "s" is silent) Hall was named in honor of Charles H. Grosvenor, who grew up in Athens, Ohio. He was an attorney, a general in the Union Army during the Civil War, and a U.S. representative for 20 years. He was responsible for persuading Andrew Carnegie to provide funds for a library at Ohio University.
