The Teachers College Library

by Elizabeth Baldwin - 1924

The educational activities of which Columbia University is the centre have been increased by the completion of Russell Hall, the new home of Teachers College Library. Russell Hall is an imposing structure, Gothic in architecture, of red brick trimmed with stone. It has a frontage of 200 feet on 120th Street; it is seventy-five feet in depth; and it is a magnificent addition to the Teachers College plant which now completely fills the block on Broadway between 120th and 121st Streets. It is six stories in height and is joined to the main Teachers College building by a great tower which dominates the entire group of buildings. A skeleton steel frame, floors and roof of reinforced concrete and partitions of hollow tile, make the building a fireproof structure of the most modern type.
