hysician's Residence

In 1928, a small house was built next to the newly dedicated Ziegler Memorial Infirmary to accommodate the resident physician, Dr. Lester P. Fowle. The construction was funded by Mrs. S. Lewis Ziegler who had stipulated in her gift to establish the infirmary that the resident physician not reside in the infirmary. He late husband, Dr. S. Lewis Ziegler, thought "that the resident physician and his family should not be quartered in the same building with the student patients." The cost for the bungalow was $7,693.72.
