Dr. Herrick summarizes his experiences prior to OSU that led to conversations with Novice Fawcett before he became President. The evolution of the office of Campus Planning from space allocation to University Plant Studies is described. He discusses the conflicts between faculty and the administration on assignment of space and utilization of classrooms. Dr. Herrick discusses early decisions in developing the campus plan which included a centralized versus a decentralized campus, locations and heights of new dormitories and some of the conflicts in designing the Tower Dorms by the river. Also discussed are the procedures for hiring architects compared to the University of Chicago and how funding sources influenced the selection of architects for OSU building
