Allen Memorial Medical Library
The Cleveland Medical Library Association carefully planned and built the Allen Memorial Medical Library building to house their library collections and their growing historical collections--now part of the Dittrick Medical History Center and Museum. They chose the architectural firm of Frank R. Walker and Harry E. Weeks, a firm noted in the Midwest for their classical revival style. Walker and Weeks left the largest legacy of important structures in Cleveland of any architectural firm in the city's history, including the Federal Reserve Bank, The Cleveland Public Library, and Severance Hall. The construction firm of Reaugh was retained, and the cornerstone was laid on July 23, 1925. Read more.
