Retro Tuesday: Smith Hall
The photo on the left was taken in the late 1930s/early 1940s of Smith Hall, shortly after the construction of the building had been completed. The building was named for Albert W. Smith, alumnus/faculty and designed by Walker and Weeks. Above the southwest entrance stands a figure of youth, a brazier at his feet evolving into a flame supporting an evaporating dish. In his left hand is a test tube; in his right, a stirring rod.
Trivia: First Case building financed by a loan, at 40 cents a cubic foot.
The original photograph can be seen here
