Spooner Hall - University Of Kansas


Spooner Hall - University Of Kansas


Description:

The university's first library, this Oread limestone and red sandstone building was designed in the Romanesque Revival style by Kansas City architect Henry van Brunt, who also designed the first chancellor's residence immediately east of it. Both were built with the 1891 bequest of Boston leather merchant and philanthropist William B. Spooner, uncle of Francis H. Snow, an original faculty member and the fifth chancellor. Dedicated in October 1894, it was the library until 1924, when the much larger Watson Library opened. For more, visit: http://buildings.ku.edu/s.shtml#spooner
