Today the work of raising $150,000 for the erection of a new building for the dental school of Harvard will be begun. The refusal of a desirably situated site in Boston on St. Botolph Street, adjoining the lot owned by the Boston Medical Association and opposite the Allen Gymnasium, has been secured for sixty days. The lot is also near the Medical School of the University on Exeter Street, which will be of special advantage to the dental students who have to attend medical courses.
The designs for the proposed structure have been prepared by Longfellow, Alden and Harlow. As now planned the building will not cover the entire lot, room being left for an annex to be built at a latter time. It will contain besides lecture halls. an amphitheatre, an operating room, laboratories for original investigations, wards for patients suffering from fractures, hemorhages, tumors, neuralgia, and other troubles. Every modern convenience will be provided for teachers, students and patients.
