MAIN CORNER IN 1865-Old print shows one of the main views of campus looking from the cor-
ner of State Street and North University. The original Haven Hall is the most prominent building;
Mason Hall and South Wing are to the right of it. The picture was drawn before the enrollment
expansion of the 1870's forced the administration to build University Hall between Mason Hall and
South Wing.

Campus Buildings-Old and New

When the University in 1950 de-
cided it needed additional class-
room, office and auditorium space
it was characteristic that it should
blueprint a modern four-million
dollar structure and construct it
behind classic, 30-year-old Angell
It was also traditional that the
shiny, glass and brick additions
should carry along a bit of the old
with them; hence the historic
names of Haven Hall, Mason Hall
and Angell Hall were designated.
Since 1841, when the first Re-
gent-authorized building, Mason
Hall, was erected, the University
has followed an architectural pol-
icy of adding a wing or a dome
here, sandwiching a structure in
there aid imbuing even the new-
est construction with tradition.
The present campus, spotty but
serviceable, with the old and new
intermingled, has resulted.
S* *:"*
BUT IF THE recently dedicated
additions bear the names of one-
time campus landmarks, they
claim little other resemblance to
Old Mason Hall, which in the
1870's became the North Wing
of University Hall, was a box-
like guant structure. Planned to
serve a small enrollment, it con-
sequently housed a library, mu-
seum, chapel, recreation room
and for several years, students'
living accommodations.
Four-storied new Mason Hall,
built to relieve an overcrowded
campus, is restricted mostly to
classroom space. It also provides
quarters for the journalism de-
partment, a vision research lab-
oratory,. a psychology workshop
and a Romance Languages labor-
* * *
HAVEN HALL was equally as
versatile as its State Street part-
ner Mason Hall in the University's
early days. Built in 1862 and later
named after University president
Erastus C. Haven, it at various
times held the Law school, the
General Library, a Regent's meet-
ing room, the extension service
and several departmental head-
But in 1950 when the University
drastically needed all available
classroom and office space, Haven
Hall was demolished by fire and
later that year, construction of
the new Haven Hall and the other
two additions was begun.
Today, Haven Hall provides
permanent office space for fac-
ulty membersfand, departmental
quarters which have for two years
been plagued with temporary
housing facilities at all ends of
the campus.

Wisconsin Students Discover
Morpheus Influences Perch

Perch go to sleep at night too.
This fact was recently establish-
ed by three students of the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin who with an
echo-sounder on a forty-foot Navy
launch traced the movements of
schools of perch in Lake Mendota.
They found that the fish spend
the night sleeping on the bottom
near the shore.
During the day the perch swim
in large schools through the water
at depths ranging between 25 and
35 feet below the surface. As the
light diminishes toward sundown
they move toward shore until they
reach the bottom. Then the school
disperses, each fish sinking to the
sandy bottom for the night.:,
When the sun rises the perch
rise too. They then congregate in-
to schools and move back into
deeper water.
What they do on rainy days is

still pending investigation al-
though it is suspected that they
"stay in bed."

SAME CORNER TODAY-A comparison of the above picture with the 1865 print, shows everything
changed but the trees. The 'new picture is taken from the same corner, State Street at North Uni-
versity, and shows the recently opened classroom building Mason Hall. The building perpetuates the
name of Michigan's first governor, Stevens T. Mason. Housing 47 classrooms and several depart-
mental laboratories, Mason Hall represents the most serviceable form of twentieth century architec-
ture. Among its features is a heat radiation mechanism under main sidewalk entrances to melt

WHAT STUDENTS FACED IN 1900's-The South Wing (which
was later joined to University Hall) is replaced geographically
today by the new office building Haven Hall. The above room is
one of the club meeting or seminar rooms of South Hall. The
ornate platform decorations were typical of such rooms in early
University buildings. Compared with other society halls which
were usually hung with curtains and scattered with classic
statues, this one would have been considered plain.


FACING THE STUDENT OF TODAY-The note-taker as well as
the lecturer was considered by architects of the four Angell Hall
auditoriums. Natural wood desks and cushioned chairs provide
comfortable accommodations for lecture classes of up to 200
persons. End-of-the-alphabet students in the last rows have no
trouble hearing the lecturer up front with new accoustical facili-
ties. For visual education purposes, each auditorium has equip-
ment for showing motioh pictures and slides from a theater-type
projection room.

'U' PROFESSOR OF OLD-Former 'U' faculty member ponders a
19th century problem in his South Hall office. The stark, service-
able room represents a tradition of non-elaborate buildings and
furnishings which the University attempted to carry out since
its beginnings but occasionally deviated from when 19th century
grandeur was in vogue. The tradition stemmed from an adminis-
