The total cost will approximate $5, 000, 000. The new library and assembly hall occupy one building 264 x 125 feet in dimensions, and also a considerable section of the great quadrangle, which is 90 0 feet square. The structure is in the Romanesque Library. On the right hand side: is an iron stairway leading to the roof, which is flat and protected by a low parapet. The original plans were designed by Shipley, Rutan & Coolidge, Boston, and called for an arch 84 feet in height, but owing to the increase in height of adjoin ing buildings the arch was carried to the additional eleva tion. The change was made under the direction of Charles E. Hodges, resident architect of the University.
