The Caltech Athenaeum, designed by architect Gordon B. Kaufmann and funded by Associates Mr. and Mrs. Allan C. Balch, was conceived by renowned astronomer and Caltech trustee George Ellery Hale as a gathering place for the Associates, faculty, and staff to promote the exchange of ideas in science, art, and literature. It continues this tradition today and offers dining facilities, guest rooms, lounges, tennis courts, and other amenities for members.
