The construction of the Baker Library was completed in 1927.[1] It was named for philanthropist George Fisher Baker.[1] From 1930 to 2007, the bell in the tower came from the Danilov Monastery in Moscow, Russia; it had been donated by Charles Richard Crane.[1]

The Bloomberg Center was built in 2003–2005.[1] It was named for billionaire alumnus Michael R. Bloomberg's father, William Henry Bloomberg.[1]

The complex includes "67 faculty offices," the de Gaspé Beaubien Reading Room (named for alumnus Philippe de Gaspé Beaubien),[2] the Stamps Reading Room and the Frist Faculty Commons (named for philanthropist Thomas F. Frist Jr.).[1][3]

Architectural design

The 1927 building was designed in the Georgian Revival style by McKim, Mead & White.[1][4] The 2005 expansion was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects.[5]

Library collections

The library collections contain many rare books and documents of business history.[6][7][8]
