1956 Biology building, 05.24.11

Built·in 1956, this Georgian Revival style building is thoroughly compatible with the older campus buildings due to its rectangluar three-story with raised basement, hip-roofed form and English bond brick walls. Variations include darker brick for the quoins, water table, and string course,above the first-floor windows. Cast limestone appears only at the entrances: those at the ends of the building have surrounds with Tuscan half-columns while the main entrance features a convex one-story portico supported by four Tuscan columns.


Every time I go by this building, it helps me remember my family's proud legacy which includes the man this building is named after, My Grandfather, his wife who was a major librarian who created the Richard B. Harrison Library in Raleigh, and of course my Mom and Dad, Valeria Lynch Lee and James S. Lee, Jr., and of course I hope it is continuing through to me and my brother and even beyond to my nephews, Julius and Langston...
