Coppée Hall

-A A +A
1883, Addison Hutton

Adjacent to the library, the gymnasium was modeled on Harvard's Hemenway Gymnasium. In contrast to the heaviness of both Edward Potter's Packer Hall and Hutton's Linderman Library, the gymnasium affected a comfortable domestic scale in a pleasant jumble of Queen Anne form and detail. The interior has been completely redone and bears no traces of the original uses and now houses the School of Journalism.
