Correspondence, clippings and other materials relating to the planning, building and inhabiting of this faculty-staff condominium project.
The Pearce-Mitchell condominiums were specifically constructed The material is in English. for older faculty and staff members of the University who wished to live on campus but did not need full size homes. After approval was received from the Board of Trustees, a plan was submitted for a 100-unit apartment complex. These designs were subsequently rejected by the Land and Building Development Committee and a new set of plans for 82 condominium units was submitted and approved on June 19, 1974. Although there was strong opposition from the student body toward faculty housing on "the row" and delays due to striking construction workers, the Pearce-Mitchell Houses were ready for occupancy on September 29, 1975. The complex was officially dedicated by Dr. Paul R. Hanna on April 30, 1976.
