Research Institutes and Accelerator Building

Research Institutes and Accelerator Building under construction, 1951. Within weeks of the end of the war, President Hutchins announced plans for new institutes for scientific research to be built on campus. The buildings were constructed across the street from the old Stagg Field stands where "CF-1," the first atomic pile, had been built. Photograph by Rus Arnold.
