The new lecture hall on Kirkland street has made great progress during the summer and should be ready in about two months.
The exterior of the building is practically completed, but the interior still needs a considerable amount of work. All the plastering and panneling will have to be done, the floors put down, the seats arranged and the doors and windows put in. The wiring, plumbing, and the heating apparatus, however, have been completed.
The building is of the colonial style, and is composed of red brick and Rhode Island limestone. It is one hundred feet long by seventy-five feet wide, and will hold 2,500 people.
There are two entrances, one on each end of the Kirkland street side. Between these entrances are three brick pannels, which will be surmounted by the seals of Harvard, United States, and Massachusetts carved in limestone.
