Repairs to Columbia Research Center conclude
Reconstruction of ceilings, walls, and floor surfaces is finished after water from a fire sprinkler system damaged several areas during an arson and vandalism incident at Ellis Library on September 10. Fortunately, damage was confined primarily to office areas, with no risk to the art storage rooms or galleries. Only two of the approximately 6,000 manuscript collections housed at the Columbia Research Center sustained minor damage, and some reels of duplicate microfilm were destroyed.
