Ground Plan of a Chemical Lecture-room & Laboratory

University of Virginia professor John Patten Emmet drew this architectural plan for a chemistry lecture hall to accommodate about 210 students and an adjoining laboratory measuring twenty by forty feet. A note on the reverse side of the sketch says that the lecture hall and laboratory would be "situated near the anatomical Hall" and would cost $3,000. Emmet served as a chemistry professor at the university from 1825 until 1842.
