Kalamazoo College Married Student Housing
MetadataShow full item record
Construction of Kalamazoo College's Married Student Housing units along West Michigan Avenue, near the College's athletic fields. These units were an addition to the existing housing, which were Army barracks that had been moved to campus to accommodate veterans attending school and their families in 1946. Students had complained for years about the inadequacy of the "hutments" (former barracks), because of their poor heating, lack of space, and layout. The six new duplex units included modern conveniences like individual natural gas furnaces, dinette tables, drapes, and a rent of about $45 a month. The new units were built by the Maywell Company of Elkhart, Indiana, and their installation was complete in May of 1961. Western Michigan University's Read Fieldhouse is in the near background across Michigan Avenue, and the Kalamazoo State Hospital's Queen Anne-style water tower is in the far background. The photographer is not identified.
