Date: Late 1950s

View: East from Thurstin over Wooster

Special Features: The tree-lined boulevard leading to University Hall has been filled in with lawn. Above the Stadium, Memorial Hall is just under construction, ground is broken for Conklin Hall (above the cottage housing, at right), while South Hall (above Founders Quadrangle, at right)is completed and ready for students. The dark rectangle at the left may be a re-toucher's effort to show what the area would look like if cleared of existing buildings. At this time, planning was underway to expand to a complex of science buildings.
