Child Development Laboratory
The Child Development Laboratory was dedicated together with the new Bevier Hall on April 4, 1957.  Designed by Naess & Murphy and Ernest Stouffer,  the new building was equipped with cork floors "to deaden noise and soften falls" and was to be a scientific laboratory in which students would become "living textbooks". The new facility primarily served 40 three and four year-olds from 9AM to 1PM Tuesday through Friday. 
Construction began on the facility in 1955 at a cost of $595,000.
