Reynolds Library Annex

Dublin Core

Description

Reynolds Hall, which housed the library collections until the construction of Penrose, was structurally damaged by the weight of the books. To solve this problem, the college built an annex attached to the west side of Reynolds. While it solved an immediate problem, Librarian Ruth Reynolds called it "not a thing of beauty," while President Chester Maxey went further, describing it as "a hideous concrete box."
Quoted in G. Thomas Edwards, Tradition in a Tubulent Age: Whitman College, 1925-1975, p. 273.
