The Baker Library/Bloomberg Center is a building complex at Harvard Business School on the campus of Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts. It includes the Baker Library, built in 1927, and the Bloomberg Center, completed in 2005.
The construction of the Baker Library was completed in 1927. It was named for philanthropist George Fisher Baker. 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.
The complex includes "67 faculty offices," the de Gaspé Beaubien Reading Room (named for alumnus Philippe de Gaspé Beaubien), the Stamps Reading Room and the Frist Faculty Commons (named for philanthropist Thomas F. Frist Jr.).
