Bureau of Mines Building
The Public Works Administration paid for the construction of the United States Bureau of Mines building on the University of Utah campus in 1939-40. It was designed by Cannon and Mullen architects. The building was demolished recently to make way for the new Frederick Albert Sutton building of the College of Mines & Earth Sciences – or, more specifically, the parking garage for the Sutton complex.
In 1938, the land had been deeded to the U. S. Government by the University of Utah, so a federal facility could be built on the campus. In 1981, the Bureau of Mines property was deeded back to the university, along with the buildings.
