Hussey and Huron Street

 

In 1909, Hussey, the director of the Observatory,  writes a letter to the city council against the expansion of Huron Street to the Observatory grounds. He believes that in order for the observatory to remain the pristine, quality institution that it is, it cannot be near areas with distractions such as smoke and shaky floors from cars. He tries to speak for what is best for the university and writes his letter beautifully.
