category : National Register
Case Hall Case Hall is Baker University's first library building. Completed in 1907 with a grant from the Carnegie Foundation it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its innovated construction for the time.


It was designed by Baker's chemistry and physics professor William C. Bauer, who introduced steel shelving placed in stacks - rather than wood shelves around the walls - and the use of clear glass blocks in the floors and ceilings of the stack area to allow light to pass between floors for better lighting between the stacks, innovations later copied in many other Carnegie Libraries.
