New Home of Public Health Service
The National Institute of Health of the U. S. Public Health Service is now occupying its new buildings, the transfer from the old structure to the new quarters having taken more than a year. The buildings comprise a two story administration building housing the library and the director's office, and an I-shaped laboratory building, 234 feet long, three stories high with a basement. Both are constructed of Indiana limestone and form the western end of the government's building program at Washington. The new laboratory building is entirely occupied by the division of pathology and bacteriology. The old north building will be remodeled for other research activities and the housing of animals, while the south building will continue to be occupied by the divisions of pharmacology, chemistry and zoology (The Journal, June 17, 1933, p. 1946).
