A Slight Correction

Hi Kevin Thanks for your kind comment, however I must apologize for not fact-checking my letter to you referring to the first high rise as Chem-Met building. It was in fact the Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics (ME-EM) building that replaced historic and beloved Hubbell Hall. Called Pillsbury towers or some such by students it was later linked to the Bubble greenhouse as the “Igloo with the world’s tallest outhouse”. when buried in snow. The once popular tilted photo of it appearing to sink into the N. horizon  was taken by Ray Smith. The precise dates of the various campus erections, correction i.e. “Structural building erections”, isn’t clear from the narative in the Centennial publication.

All the best, Go Huskies,  Bob Carnahan ’53

Thanks, Bob: I’ll dig that photo up in time for next issue. I love that one. –Kevin
