    Every time I go by this building, it helps me remember my family's proud legacy which includes the man this building is named after, My Grandfather, his wife who was a major librarian who created the Richard B. Harrison Library in Raleigh, and of course my Mom and Dad, Valeria Lynch Lee and James S. Lee, Jr., and of course I hope it is continuing through to me and my brother and even beyond to my nephews, Julius and Langston...

Built·in 1956, this Georgian Revival style building is thoroughly compatible with the older campus buildings due to its rectangluar three-story with raised basement, hip-roofed form and English bond brick walls. Variations include darker brick for the quoins, water table, and string course,above the first-floor windows. Cast limestone appears only at the entrances: those at the ends of the building have surrounds with Tuscan half-columns while the main entrance features a convex one-story portico supported by four Tuscan columns.
