40 years ago: Plans near completion for new Haskell buildings

October 27, 2013


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 27, 1973:

Detailed sketches for a learning resource center and a kitchen-dining facility at Haskell Indian Junior College were expected to be completed by the middle of November, according to the architectural firm designing the buildings. Brian Kubota of the Robertson, Peters and Williams architectural firm told the Haskell Board of Regents this week that detailed aspects such as sidewalks, landscaping, signs, and graphics were now being planned. Bids were to be let and building contracts signed by June 1974, with the two buildings ready for occupancy by the winter of 1975. As part of the overall master site plan for Haskell, housing clusters were to someday replace the traditional dormitories. Three small houses and a recreation center would be included in each cluster, with two students housed in each room of the eight rooms of a house and all housemates sharing the kitchenette and living areas.
