TEMPORARY FOR YEARS:
TCB To Be Demolished In Fall

The Temporary Classroom Build-
ing which has been a permanent
fixture behind Health Service and
the Dental School for over 25
years will soon be torn down to
make room for the expansion of
the dentistry facilities.
Originally an Army surplus
warehouse brought to Ann Arbor
at the end of World War II, the
building has served in various ca-
pacities and contains forgotten
remnants of the speech depart-
ment's history.
Battleship grey walls and ply-
wood corridors are lined with pos-
ters which were once familiar to
every theatre student on campus
and which mark the progression
of dramatic productions done in
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre from
the early 1930's through 1957.
Cardboard Partitions
When the speech department
first moved into the building in
1947 the partitions between the
rooms were nothing but cardboard
and quite vulnerable to rehears-
ing actors. The shellacked posters,
now inseparable from the plywood
and cardboard, are of great senti-
mental value to the University
Players and particularly to Prof.
William P. Halstead of the speech
department who remembers the
time and effort they represent.
The posters begin with a 1932
production of "The Adding Ma-
chine" by Elmer Rice who later,
as a visiting lecturer, directed a
speech department production of
another of his plays,, "Dream
Girl."
The posters bear the names of
dramatists from Aristophanes to
Tennessee Williams and the names
of stars: Madge Evans, Lillian
Gish, Katherine Cornell, Burgess
Meredith, and Jose Ferrer among
others.
Salvage Walls
The speech department hopes
that arrangements can be made
with the literary college to sal-
vage two of the walls in the TCB
before the building is demolished.
Previous efforts to transfer the
walls were unsuccessful because
the department lacked enough
money to replace the plywood.
More recently the TCB has been
utilized by the Army ROTC as sa
headquarters for its offices and
classrooms. Separated from the
Navy and Air Force ROTC units
from 1950 through 1963, the Ar-
my shared the building with the
dramatists.
For the past two years the
Center for Research on Conflict
Resolution and the Center for Re-
search on Social Organization have
occupied the building. In the base-
ment of the TCB the Conflict Res-
olution people have carried on
numerous research projects con-
conflict and its resolution, nation-
alism and internationalism, the
Cold, War, arms control and dis-
armament, the development of in-
ternational agencies and proced-
ures, and problems of developing
nations.
Their publication, "The Journal
of Conflict Resolutions," has serv-
ed to alert scholars to the field
of peace research. The Center con-
tinues to conduct seminars in this
a field for those who are interested
in its work.
The Center will now be tem-
porarily housed in Perry School
until it is moved to a permanent
location in the Argus Building.
The Center' for Research on So-
cial Organization, which will -re-
establish itself over the Michigan
Theatre, has been involved with
the individual research projects
of the sociology department.

THE TEMPORARY CLASSROOM BUILDING which will be demolished in September was given to
the University as a part of a Federal Works Agency project in 1947. The building has most recently
housed the Center for Research on Conflict Resolution and the Center for Research on Social Or-
ganization. As a temporary structure it has stood for over 25 years.
