  • Recollections from the Archives: Hudson to Cleveland: Constructing the New Buildings - Year 2
    the library room I am making drawings for my lecture table and hope to have it begun soon so as to be done by the middle of the term if possible The table will be nineteen feet long and I think will be one of the most convenient and complete yet devised The arrangement for introducing gas water blast and exhaust will be particularly neat and convenient January 28 1883 The college buildings go on slowly The carpenters are putting on the wood work of the stairs I think this is about the last work remaining for the carpenters The man who puts in the stair rails has got his rails there and is drawing plans He can not begin putting up rails till the steps are laid The painters are somewhat behindhand The work of the carpenters is very poor work not one of the men will ever do work for me I have some work to be done which they want to get but there is absolutely no use in their talking to me about it Our Mr Freeman who is Professor of Physics has got his apparatus up from Hudson by going down there and packing it mostly himself He had it brought up on sleds during a few days of good going on runners I wish very much that the chemical apparatus were packed and brought here I cannot go and pack it up till the weather is so that I should not be likely to take cold and I want it to use before very long February 19 1883 Work is slowly going on at the building The carpenters are putting up the stair rail and have but little left now I put in a guage sic the other day to show how much water was contained in the tank put in the attic The plumbers put in one which would not work though it was only designed to let a stream of water run down when the tank was full Mine tells just how much water there is in the tank and works all right March 4 1883 The carpenters move as slowly at the college buildings as the hour hands of a clock They put up the front doors the other day The workmanship of the men left on the job is pretty poor The boss carpenter want the job of putting up the tables in the chemical rooms and of the shelves in the library These he will not get if I have any influence on the decision He has let he men deface and defile the building so offensively that no men under his direction will every work for me The man wants to do right but he has no idea of work the grade which is required nor of using care to keep things neat and clean till the building is turned over to the owners Posted by jmt3 at November 15 2012 11 15 PM Trackback Pings TrackBack URL

  • Recollections from the Archives: Hudson to Cleveland: Planning the Buildings
    the matter Today I go to Cleveland to look over the plan with the architect to give direction about details as may be needed Mr Cutler will also go up to see about the division of the forty three acres which have been bought for us and the Case School jointly There was a meeting for the purpose but there was so much delay on the part of our side that nothing was accomplished towards the actual agreement of the two parties The division will very likely be made today In case agreement is not reached the committee of arbitration will be called on to act they say the way to decide the question of size of the shares must be determined by asking the subscribers to whose site they gave their share of the money this course will give us what we claim namely two thirds or three quarters of the land A railroad is to run across the rear of our lot cutting off about three acres Perhaps this may give us rapid transit into the city but the station would be at least two thousand feet from the college May 30 1881 Matters at Cleveland drag at present It is ten weeks since the vote to remove and the architect is not quite done with the specifications though I suppose we could not have expected any quicker dispatch on this part of the business Now we have to call for bids to make a contract and to wait The lot is not yet divided but that matter is now committed to Mr Stone and I presume he will have it done in time he is brother to the man who built a bridge across the Schuylkill for the Pennsylvania Railroad in thirty days from the burning of the previous bridge The Hudson people have given up all purpose of doing anything to oppose the removal of the college As they cannot do anything this seems a wise resolve June 12 1881 Things are going on very slowly at Cleveland Mr Stone told me yesterday as I met him on the street that he thought some of the delay was unreasonable I hardly think Mr Cutler has kept the matter pushing as he ought Still we may get to Cleveland by the beginning of February of next year which is what has been planned for the last two months and what has been announced to our students as our expectation June 22 1881 I enclose a cutting from a paper which has a description of the proposed buildings for the college To day the papers contain an account of the donation by Mr Wade of a hundred acres just opposite the lot on which we are to build for a public park for the city of Cleveland The Council took action on looking towards accepting the gift and expending one or two hundred thousand dollars in beautifying it This is of course very acceptable to us The Mr

  • Recollections from the Archives: Hudson to Cleveland: Financing the Move
    last agreements are made and the committee went to work yesterday to raise the money This will not take long as they are greatly interested in the matter at Cleveland One man who is worth a few millions a Mr Wade saw on the table of a Mr Everett who was one of our committee a note to Mr Cutler saying that he was greatly interested in the removal but was so very busy that he thought he must withdraw from the committee and Mr Wade said to him No no stay on the committee and if you get in a tight place I will help you out So Mr Everett staid and told the story The committee have made a list of the men who are to be asked to give towards the site and divided the work among themselves January 30 1881 The matters preliminary to the work of our committee in raising the money are successfully ended The papers binding the different parties are made out and found satisfactory The committee is a strong one composed of some twenty prominent business men well disposed to the college and to the plans for its future I think the money may perhaps be raised in a week The committee begins work on Tuesday next and I hope they will be able to report substantial progress by Tuesday the eighth of February At which time there is to be an alumni banquet of our alumni at Cleveland February 3 1881 The committee have got two subscriptions of five thousand dollars each towards the lot for the college Things are all right apparently February 23 1881 The removal business gets on all right as far as I know Mr Cutler went up to Cleveland on Monday to see how matters stood then but I have not seen him since that time Last Thursday they had thirty thousand dollars secured and the Case School men had signified that they would see the thing through by giving towards the end of the subscription The thirty thousand came from some men whose names had to come first on the list some were trustees and others were also in such position that the committee thought that they must get these subscriptions before they could even approach others As soon as they got these names they approached several men at once and expect a lot of subscriptions almost at the same time as the result of such efforts I think they will get the money now in a couple of weeks or so Mr Cutler does not now think that the college will be opened at Cleveland till the summer of 1882 which seems to be the most likely time as far as we can judge The putting up the buildings will certainly take more time than to permit the removal this year and if we begin next year here we may as well finish as students would not like to have to get rooms ready

  • Recollections from the Archives: Hudson to Cleveland: the Decision to Move
    Mr Cutler attended Nothing definite was done or proposed the meeting being chiefly useful in getting the matter before the public One thing which I think it accomplished is this there was on the part of some of those who favor the removal to Cleveland the idea that the college should be put about five miles from the centre of Cleveland Against this notion Mr Cutler had labored the feeling developed at this meeting will settle the question in favor of a central location which is what we judge the best June 27 1880 A Cleveland gentleman is ready to give the college four hundred thousand dollars to increase the endowment and one hundred thousand dollars for a building as soon as a building lot shall be secured at Cleveland It is not to be made known here till after Commencement September 14 1880 The meeting to move the college adjourned as was the plan on account of the absence of two trustees who were at a good distance They will meet next week Tuesday and there is now no doubt that there will be a majority of three fourths for removal It is likely that there will be but two against removal and perhaps only one There is a good deal of bitterness about it in town but it does not seem to make much difference to us Mr Cutler has to take it this is partly because the paper which he read to the trustees concerning the removal spoke a little hastily of Hudson and gives offence He meant to revise it before publication but gave it to the reporter without revision The effect is that some who never lacked friendship for Mr Cutler think the remarks he makes about Hudson are not just But we shall go to Cleveland all the same September 20 1880 The trustees have met today and have voted fourteen to two and one absent to remove the college to Cleveland Amasa Stone give four hundred thousand dollars to add to our endowment and one hundred thousand for building We have to secure a site in Cleveland in six months or less A preparatory school is to be kept up here at least five years Mr Cutler has not got back yet so that I do not know all the details But after all the somewhat acerb feelings of people in Hudson it is good to win by so good a majority And all the men were decided in their opinion every man had his mind made up except one of the men who voted not he was not decided against it He would have voted the other way probably if it had been necessary to carry the measure So we have to plan a building and get it built Mr Cutler was President of Western Reserve College from 1871 to 1886 Cutler s History of Western Reserve College During Its First Half Century unfortunately ends in 1876 so we do not have
