LAND FOR THE INFIRMARY.

Has been Bought Next the Cambridge Hospital on Mt. Auburn Street.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The land secured for the Harvard Infirmary is the lot between the land of the Cambridge Hospital and that of the Old Peoples' Home-one hundred feet on Mt. Auburn street and extending back to the new Parkway. The proposed building will be of brick with stone trimmings, two and a half stories in height, with a frontage of forty-six feet, and a length of one hundred and thirty feet or more. In addition to the single rooms for students there will be a library and reading room for convalescents, rooms for the parents whose sons are patients in the Infirmary, the necesary bath rooms and laboratories, and a diet kitchen in addition to the kitchen of the Infirmary proper.

The location of the building is such as to give an outlook over the the new Metropolitan Park and Soldiers Field, and a sunny exposure on three sides for the greater part of the day. The building will be put up as soon as the necessary funds are in hand.
