Lippincott is a traditional residence hall built in 1962. It is named for Miriam Lee Early Lippincott, trustee of Rutgers (1932-1947). She served as a member of the Board of Managers and Trustees Committee of New Jersey College for Women (now Douglass College), and as a member of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs. Lippincott was a pioneer in the fight-cancer movement in New Jersey. Resulting from her generous donations to Douglass College, the Barbara Lee Lippincott Scholarship was instituted in 1938.
