English: Exterior view of the Chas. M. Stimson Library, built in 1904 on the Occidental College Highland Park Campus, ca.1908
  • The two-story Beaux-Arts style building has an extended porch where above it is a pediment displaying the name of the building. Multifoil tracery outline the windows the walls. Above the roof is a turret-like tower. A stone masonry wall creates a perimeter around the front yard. Heavy tracks line the dirt road in front of the building.
  • After the College moved to its present campus in Eagle Rock in 1914 the Stimson Library building was used for a short time as a Los Angeles City Branch Library. The building has since been demolished.
