The Hunter building – before the restoration! It was a great echoing and fascinating space place.
I was a grad student in the Physics department. I had an office on the top floor. The window wouldn’t shut because there was a branch of a rata tree growing into the frame. There was a tame mouse that would occasionally come out for a stroll across the carpet. There was a huge copy of a James Thurber cartoon (“What do you mean you heard a seal bark?”) drawn on the wall by some previous incumbent.
You could hear music drifting down the corridors because the Music department was the only other one in the building. A colleague’s girlfriend was offering haircuts in an empty office for a while, and we had a table tennis table in the old law library. I’ll bet it’s not as much fun now!
