Another distinctive style of architecture is seen in Crawford Building, whose arches, balconies, and circular front porch are reminiscent of Italian Renaissance country homes. Named for Dr. Thomas A. Crawford, an original Board of Trustee member and well-known physician, the building was the last to be completed under the initial campus plan in 1896. Then called the Infirmary, the facility was constructed with convict labor and incorporated modern hospital design. A north wing was added in 1912.
