1943
Anatole Kopp

Two of the four music practice cubicles were constructed by architecture and music students working with Anatole Kopp in the spring and summer of 1943. Wood salvaged from the Service Building which had burned and from scrap piles was used. Insulation was sawdust. Wood stoves were used for heat. In 1945 Mac Wood described them as being of "doubtful permanent value", and in the June 1946 college bulletin it was noted: "The music cubicles, never finished, tired and shabby, are torn down and very decently."
