The Little Dig?
Our version of the Big Dig may not have cost as much as Bostons
and certainly didnt take as long to finish, but construction
of the Littauer building was still worth posing for, as Frank
Stanton and Graham Allison did in 1977. The 100,000 square-foot
building was the first built for the new school, followed
by Belfer, Eliot, and Taubman. Original plans called for all
concrete and glass, which Allison, wearing the spiffy plaid
blazer, vetoed as the schools new dean. Stanton, wearing
the Harvard insignia hardhat, was chair of the schools
visiting committee. The all-brick building debuted in the
fall of 1978.
