New Laboratory at Bussey Institution

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Work has been begun on a new building at the Bussey Institution in Jamaica Plain. When finished the building will be used for the manufacture of vaccine and antitoxine for the State Board of Health, under the direction of Professor Theobald Smith of the Medical School.

The plans call for a simple two story brick building, forty-eight feet square, with a large ell in which the cows and other animals to be experimented upon are to be kept. The interior finish will be extremely simple, but the laboratories will be fitted up with a large amount of the expensive apparatus necessary in the kind of work to be carried on.

The construction is now being hurried as much as possible and it is expected that the building will be ready for use by the middle of next April. The estimated cost is $20,000.
