 Organization

Sources

University of Denver. Date built: 1910. "In 1910 Alumni Gymnasium was built on the site of the present-day Daniels College of Business. Conforming with the other buildings constructed during this era, the Roeschlaub-designed structure incorporated features found in Roman or Renaissance architecture. The prototype for the building was the Roman Basilica. [...] During World War I, the gymnasium was converted into a barracks, housing close to 300 military personnel. Additionally, a hopsital wing was constructed on the building's north side" (Built for Learning, p. 18). "Alumni Gymnasium was imploded in September 1997 to make way for the Daniels College of Business" (Built for Learning, p. 36).
