Building Namesake

Daniel WebsterDaniel Webster
Born: 1782
Deceased: 1852

Webster, Emerson, and Thoreau Halls were named by the original owner of what we now call the Cuarto housing area. When student housing purchased these buildings in fall 1986 they decided to keep the original building names. Webster Hall was named after Massachusetts statesman and senator, Daniel Webster.   Webster was one of the nation's most prominent conservatives, leading opposition to Democrat Andrew Jackson and the Democratic Party. During his 40 years in national politics, Webster served in the House of Representatives for 10 years (representing New Hampshire), in the Senate for 19 years (representing Massachusetts), and was appointed the Secretary of State under three presidents. Webster took part in several key U.S. Supreme Court cases which established important constitutional precedents that bolstered the authority of the federal government. As Secretary of State, he negotiated the Webster-Ashburton Treaty, which established the definitive eastern border between the United States and Canada. Webster was considered the Northern member of a trio known as the "Great Triumvirate", with his colleagues Henry Clay from the West (Kentucky) and John C. Calhoun from the South (South Carolina). His "Reply to Hayne" in 1830 was regarded as "the most eloquent speech ever delivered in Congress." Throughout his life, Daniel Webster continued to influence politics and helped shape the United States as it is known today.
