Louis Warren Ross was an architect and alum of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. He graduated from MAC in 1917. Ross was an active alumnus and a member of the institution’s UMASS alumni corporation which formed in the mid 1930s. From that time until the early 1960s, Ross was the most prolific architect of the campus. He was responsible for the design of more than twenty structures, including nearly all the dormitories constructed between 1935 and 1963. Although his body of work established the Georgian Revival style as a dominant tradition for the residential quadrangles of the campus, he was also responsible for the modern design of the Student Union and Lincoln Apartments.
