The post-war years witnessed the biggest University construction enterprises and real estate transactions since the occupation of the River Campus in First in line was a naval science building, erected to the south of Rhees Library and called Harkness Hall in memory of Rear-Admiral William Harkness of the famous University class of On the exterior the three-storied structure conformed to standard River Campus architecture.

Laid out like a ship, the hall contained offices and classrooms, a naval library, a practice range, instruments, and in the basement equipment to teach naval tactics; the top floor was not put to immediate use. Rising prices pushed the cost of the building and equipment to fifty percent above the original estimates, and despite prolonged negotiations the Navy Department refused to bear part of the expense.

Finished in October,it had faculty offices, computing and class rooms, a shop, and a large library. That year enrollment in all branches of engineering swept past the mark, almost twice as large as before the war. To carry on advanced instruction and research in physics, Bausch and Lomb Hall was substantially expanded But more exciting by far was the construction of a giant cyclotron or atom-smasher for research in nuclear physics on the southeastern rim of the campus; reportedly this huge million Looking for first time 33 Rochester 33 monster was the second most powerful in existence.

It was largely paid for by the United States Navy Department, which was likewise responsible for operating expenses. The University contributed two buildings to the complex, built in a small ravine where the embankment formed a radiation shield; to haul in the heavy research equipment a short, temporary standard gauge railway track was laid down. After two and a half years of building, the cyclotron went into operation in the presence of a company of distinguished guests with Lee A. DuBridge, then president of the California Institute of Technology, as the principal speaker.

Following lengthy debate, the trustees authorized the erection of a five-story extension on the northern end of Lattimore Hall. Work space was provided for eight senior staff members and about fifty graduate students or post-doctoral fellows engaged in investigations inorganic or physical chemistry. A specialized library was installed on the top floor, and there the editorial offices of the Journal of the American Chemical Societythe most widely circulated publication of its kind, were eventually located.

Far the greater cost of the construction and equipment of the new wing, which as usual soared well beyond expectations, was borne by industrial firms and individuals who mostly chose to remain anonymous. Ceremonies of dedication were conducted on October 25,in connection with a meeting of the National Academy of Sciences, an elite society of to which Dean George H.

Whipple and Professor Wallace O. Fenn of the Medical Center and chemist W. Albert Noyes, Jr. Thanks to a subsidy from the New York State government, extensive alterations were made in Todd Union, the former bookstore, for instance, being converted into a bakeshop the bookstore found a temporary haven in the basement of Rhees Library and subsequently a new kitchen and a cafeteria were provided. These improvements came in the wake of angry undergraduate complaints about the dining service.

Enumerating no less than eight types of criticism, Dean Wilder commented, "Food service in a college dining hall is a perennial problem.

Right now it is aggravated by the high prices of both raw food and labor. Not long afterward, the dining situation having deteriorated, if anything, Wilder received a notable communication, "It's enough to make a saint swear!

Prices are fantastic--men eat in their own rooms for a third of what dining in Todd costs. Frustration, dissatisfaction, and mistrust are rife," and the allegations were amply documented. A drastic shakeup in the Todd managerial staff and accelerated service soothed protestants markedly. State aid financed a slight enlargement of living space in the Stadium Dormitory, and the national government stepped in with money to alleviate the housing headache.

The Federal Public Housing Authority allocated funds to build two makeshift T-shaped structures to accommodate about single war veterans, to the north of the existing dormitories, and to lay out a similar housing complex for married veterans, their wives and babies, on a Lattimore Road tract southwest of Helen Wood Hall; administrative officers kept saying that more permanent residence halls were urgently needed.

The River Campus "barracks" with their thin walls were noisy, making study and sleeping difficult, and protests were registered almost daily. In the trustees agreed that drawings should be prepared for additional dormitories, and recreation lounges were blocked out in Burton and Crosby Halls.

Delayed by shortage of plumbing and other supplies, the family units--over eighty of them--on the Lattimore Road area were not fully Looking for first time 33 Rochester 33 for occupancy untiland they served their purpose until demolished in Tenants liked the low rent, set out trees in the name of beautification, and cultivated vegetable gardens.

Demand for quarters, however, far outstripped the supply; of some married undergraduates only about thirty-five obtained lodgings at University Village, or, as it was dubbed, "The Mud Flats. Completed inpreference in tenancy was reserved for families connected in some way with the University. It is a pity that no one proffered a suggestion to investigate the possibility of acquiring and rehabilitating the old United States Hotel on West Main Street, the first home of the University, for young faculty couples or graduate students.

An under- graduate petition for an interdenominational chapel opposite Strong Auditorium and a request by outside interests to use the Auditorium as a non-profit summer theatre--a recurrent idea--were turned down by University officers. Expansion of physical properties made necessary a big increase in the capacity of the heating plant and major extensions of the - electrical network. At long last, too, the dangerous approach to the River Campus along the River Boulevard from the north was rectified; an S-curve sufficiently wide for only two cars and winding beneath two railway bridges was eliminatedand the roadway was broadened to four lanes with only a single gentle bend.

There for two years approximately one hundred freshmen who resided in Rochester or who obtained rooms in the city were taught standard first- year academic subjects. For physical education they repaired to the campus where they were eligible to take part in the extracurriculum; eyebrows were arched when men at the "Madison Annex" captured four of the five freshmen class offices! Inon Valentine's recommendation the trustees agreed that the mansion should soon cease to be the executive residence.

Various projects for the use of the property had their partisans; a Methodist pastor, for instance, inquired whether the estate could be bought for the future site of a sanctuary and others recommended that it be converted into a dormitory for graduate students, or a University language house, or headquarters of the Honors Division.

It was also suggested that the property might become the center of a University department of photography to train students for medical and educational vocations. Like the other proposals, this one failed of adoption an established Columbia University course in photography had attracted very few studentsyet the idea contained the germ of the ultimate solution.

Consultations produced an agreement turning the estate over to a new organization, the George Eastman House, Incorporated, to be managed by a t board drawn from the Kodak Company, which agreed to renovate and maintain the property, and from the University trustees.

Several East Avenue possibilities were considered, and the Babcock residence, cornering on Berkeley Street, was finally chosen. Though smaller than the Eastman mansion, of course, it none the less was a commodious red brick dwelling of the townhouse style of architecture popular at the turn of the century. At much greater expense than had been anticipated, the Babcock property was Looking for first time 33 Rochester 33 up for presidential occupancy and furniture was moved over from the Eastman House.

Since the Babcock residence had been willed to the Eastman School, the School was compensated by the allocation of additional scholarship funds. Valentine was happy over the prospect of moving into a home "more in keeping with the academic way of life," as he said, half in jest, half in earnest, at the inauguration of the photographic museum on November 9,"No other member of my impoverished profession ever lived so magnificently so long In these days no socially conscious person could enjoy such private splendor without a sense of guilt.

Paternal promises promptly assuaged her anguish. The trustees considered selling the land for a large housing development, but no decision was actually reached at the time. In the heart of the city, the City Hall Annex, entrusted to the University by the George Eastman will, was deeded to the municipal government fulfilling Eastman's wish, as the site of a Civic War Memorial. To keep friends of the library acquainted with special collections, current donations, and the like, a University of Rochester Library Bulletin first appeared in November ofand the useful Fortnightly Bulletinlisting acquisitions, was discontinued.

Aside from purchases, resources were enlarged by gifts; including the fine C. Schuyler Davis collection of books for children and annual donations by the family and friends of the late Hiram Olsan, class ofto buy rare books for the Treasure Room. On the other side of the ledger, the R. Adam collection on Samuel Johnson, housed in Rhees Library for a dozen years, was removed upon purchase by a bibliophile. Very ificant was the growth of collections of original papers having historical importance.

The Thurlow Weed collection, deposited inwas given to the University outright, and the descendants of Schuyler Colfax, vice-president of the United States under Ulysses S. Grant, presented a sheaf of his papers, and those of the James S. Wworth family of Geneseo were obtained on microfilm. But the major acquisition was the personal papers and related documentary materials of William Henry Seward bequeathed to the University by his grandson, William Henry Seward, 3rd.

A key personality in mid-nineteenth century American politics, Seward had served, successively as governor of New York, United States senator, and secretary of state in the cabinets of Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. Eagerly sought by many institutions, the Seward collection approacheditems, many of them reposing in trunks and boxes for nearly a century and never examined by historians.

Quite accurately, President Valentine called the acquisition "one of the most important events in the hundred year history of the library. Dewey and Alfred E. Smith, of James E. Farley, a powerful figure in the Democratic party and at one time Postmaster- General of the United States, and of lesser politicians of New York State.

Eventually the Dewey collection was given to the University, but the others eluded all overtures, and the same was true of the papers of Bernard Baruch, legendary financier and counselor of presidents, and of Wendell Willkie, Republican presidential aspirant in Papers and memorabilia of Democrats-for-Willkie were, however, deposited in the Library.

Over the years various donors presented to the University large s of rare coins, which warranted the appointment of an honorary curator of the holdings. Librarian John R. Russell never ceased reminding the trustees and administrators of the deficiencies and overcrowding in Rhees Library, owing to the much larger body of undergraduate and graduate students and to the accelerating pace of book acquisitions.

Reading rooms were congested and a huge increase in book circulation laid heavy burdens upon the staff, which at one point was smaller than before the war. Students responded in a gratifying manner to Looking for first time 33 Rochester 33 Coffee Hours in the Welles-Brown Room, initiated in After a modest collation, a University teacher or another competent person reviewed a book or discussed a current public issue or an exciting idea, and then the hour-long meeting was thrown open for an informal interchange between auditors and speaker.

When it was discovered that books that required binding could be done more cheaply by commercial firms, the library bindery, in operation for eighteen years, closed down. Taking the University as a whole, enrollment soared to 6, in the autumn of as against a comparable 5, before the war; full time learners ed 3, 1, of them veterans in contrast to 2, The next year the total reached 6, of whom more than 4, were full time, and in a record figure of 9, was reported with 4, full time decline then set in.

In the Honors Division enrollment men and womenstanding at eighteen invirtually doubled in the ensuing five years, along with a small quota of undergraduates and master's candidates who ed up for a single seminar.

To acquaint prospective entrants with the working of the honors they were invited to attend seminar sessions. Men released from the armed forces, a fair proportion of whom had commenced their collegiate training at Rochester, were responsible for the upsurge in registration shortly after hostilities ended. Except for those disabled in combat for whom the government made special provision, veterans benefited from the G.

Veterans formed approximately eighty percent of the undergraduates in and fifty-eight percent inbut shrank to twenty-three percent in For certain purposes undergraduates were classified in three : veterans, men in the NROTC:, and "civilians. An office for veteran's affairs was set up in Dewey Hall, and a President's Advisory Council for Veterans contained two delegates from each division of the University in which men were enrolled.

Representative of the Rochester men who came back from the war was John M. A bombardier-navigator out of a base in southern Italy, he was accorded many military distinctions. Comparing the college he knew before the war with the college after the conflict, Keil wrote, "In regard to studies, the majority of veterans who have returned to continue their interrupted college careers have found it difficult to concentrate on studying outside of the class room The war-weary student is older, more mature, takes his studies more seriously The ex-G.

World history seems to come alive As for the veterans who were newcomers to the campus, Keil went on, "The going is undoubtedly harder for them than for one who has already had a sense of college life and knows what to expect.
