We regret extremely our inability to reproduce this morning more than the immediate surroundings of Phillips Brooks House. Mr. Longfellow's plan, from which the cut was taken, included Holworthy to the east and a portion of the street to the west, with the aim of showing as clearly as possible the relation the new structure will bear to other College buildings. There has been so much criticism of the site that it was the wish of the committee to prove at the start that objections to it were somewhat exaggerated, or at least that the site had been made the most of.
As far as this last is concerned even our plan will bear witness of entire success. The conditions offered Mr. Longfellow were discouraging in the extreme. Graduates and undergraduates alike were exclaiming against what they considered an outrage on the College grounds. Any architect might have felt that popular prejudice was against him from the start. We believe that Mr. Longfellow has dealt so successfully with the narrow space allotted him, that even the situation of the building will cease in measure to be criticized.
