History:

While the suite was originally named after Rachel Squibb Byler, a P.E.O. who supported the suite in honor of her husband, it was later renamed for Florence M. Wallace, president of the Supreme Chapter of the P.E.O. from 1973 to 1975.

1959-?
Originally the suite housed visiting P.E.O.s (which is why there is a now-defunct deadbolt lock on the inside of Wallace's double doors).

1979-1980
Byler suite was known as the Suite de EspaƱol. Every Wednesday the suitemates would endeavor to speak Spanish and serve tasty Mexican and Spanish treats.

1989
"Byler" suite was refurbished and renamed "Wallace" suite. Prior to this, the suite had deep pile blue shag carpeting.
