“Throops’s Superlative Opportunity”: The Story of the Gates Laboratory of Chemistry

Jennifer Torres and Peter Sachs Collopy, Caltech, 2017

The Gates Laboratory of Chemistry, constructed in 1917 in part to persuade chemist Arthur A. Noyes to join the faculty, is Caltech’s oldest building and the first to cross the hundred-year threshold. Today, the building is the home of the Institute’s administrative offices and is called the Parsons-Gates Hall of Administration.
