To the right of the chapel stands Kirkland Hall, built in 1823 as a twin of North College, then remodeled as Soper Gymnasium in 1891. Kirkland stands in front of Carnegie Hall (1904) and both serve as residence halls today.

Minor (1902) funded renovations that led to the opening of the present-day theater in 1962. Minor was president of General Electric from 1922-1945, and served as chairman of the board of trustees at Hamilton College for many years. He is remembered fondly for his contributions to the university, and lovingly for once opening a NY Times interview with, "I'm a very busy man.
