Stanley Thomas Hall was constructed in 1911 by architects Andry and Bendernagel in the Richarsonian Romanesque style. It is built of brick and concrete. Stanley O. Thomas, attorney, soldier, and President of the New Orleans Cotton Exchange, bequeathed to Tulane the funds to erect "a building for University purposes" to be named in his memory. The building partially defines an outdoor courtyard to its east. A fourth floor was added in 1929 under the supervision of Professor of Architecture J. Herndon Thomson (contractor, John O’Brien).

Tulane University, or officially The Tulane University of Louisiana, a private, nonsectarian university, was established as a public medical college in 1834 and grew into a comprehensive university in 1847 and was eventually privatized under the endowments of Paul Tulane and Josephine Louise Newcomb in 1884. Tulane’s primary campus, the Uptown or St. Charles campus, was established in the 1890s and occupies more than 110 acres.

The Tulane University of Louisiana National Historic District is bound by St. Charles Avenue, South Claiborne Street, Broadway and Calhoun Street.
