Kellogg Institute (University of Michigan) – Ann Arbor MI

Description

The University of Michigan’s Kellogg Institute was constructed during the Great Depression with the aid of federal Public Works Administration (PWA) funds.

“The Kellogg Foundation, in co-operation with the School of Dentistry, formulated a plan to erect a building specially designed for that purpose. In August, 1938, President Ruthven presented to the Board of Regents a proposal of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation offering to give 55 per cent of the cost of an addition to the School of Dentistry, on condition that the Public Works Administration provide 45 per cent of a total cost of $400,000. Ultimately, the W. K. Kellogg Foundation granted $236,500 for the building and the Public Works Administration $209,835. Thus, the total cost of construction was $446,335.” (umich.edu)
