The Horace H. Rackham Graduate Studies Building

Last month I had a picture of this building with the promise that I would take more pictures. Well, I had my chance to take more pictures because this is another impressive looking building.

This building was completed in 1938. And was built from a gift by Horace Rackham who was one of the original stockholders in Ford Motor company.

The building is constructed from Indiana Limestone and has a copper roof. The doors and frames were made of bronze. The cost of construction was $2.5 million.

This is one of the friezes, each is dedicated to one of the branches of science.

This is one of the entrances to the building. As you can see it is pretty impressive.
