Minor detail - it's not "Queen's College" in New York, it's "Queens College" (full name "Queens College, City University of New York"; I've visited there and interloaned items from their library; in addition I spent the very first 5 years of my life in the borough of Queens, New York City, New York, for which it is named.)
The etymology is basically the same (see Wikipedia...) but the apostrophe has disappeared.
In re Rathaus and Queens College, see Rathaus' papers @ Queens College, e.g. here. -- archives.qc.cuny.edu/finding_aids/KarolRathausPapers
