The College of Education Building Committee Records detail the planning and events involved in the construction of the College of Education Building at Wayne State University. The collection consists of the records of the College of Education Building Committee for which Willard M. Bateson, associate professor in the College of Education, served as chairman, and records from the College of Education’s Column Raising Ceremony. The Column Raising (or cornerstone laying) Ceremony for the new College of Education Building was held on Thursday, June 11, 1959. The four-story building, designed by architect Minoru Yamasaki, was completed in 1961 and provided 96,000 square feet of space, which allowed the college to centralize its offices and classrooms.
