1912 Bosler Library, Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

[LIB10105] - Bosler Memorial Hall was a Roman-Gothic building made of red stone, completed June 23, 1886, at a cost of $68,000.  The architect of the building was Charles L. Carson.  The College originally requested that the building be built with less expensive materials in order to build a larger facility, but Bosler's widow insisted that it be built with the finest.  The exterior of the James W. Bosler Memorial Hall included a tower and an arched portal topped by twin cherubs. []
