Archives web site

A reader recently posted to this blog asking where they could see more information on the campus school. The answer was at the archives web site, There is a good bit of history of our school, it's programs and people, including photographs on those pages. We also will be doing quite a bit of expansion of the pages this winter and spring :-)

The library 100 years ago

This photo shows the library of 100 years ago. It was in the center section of the old Normal School building, which stood where Hartwell Hall is today. The library occupied a similar spot in Hartwell Hall for a number of years. In the early 1960s the first building designed solely for a library was built; no, not the Drake of today though! It was "Drake I," which today is Rakov, on Kenyon Street. Today's Drake Library opened in 1975.
