Past Where is That? challenges:
The Lobby Ceiling of Lee Hills Hall
Constructed in 1995, Lee Hills Hall sits on the corner of Eighth and Elm Streets and is a part of the Missouri School of Journalism; it is home to both “the Columbia Missourian” and “Vox Magazine.”
Constructed in 1958 and dedicated on May 4, 1961, the Agriculture Building stands at the corner of Hitt and Rollins. When constructed, the building had 90,000 square feet of floor spaced to accommodate 32 laboratories, five classrooms and 125 individual offices. The structure originally housed the School of Forestry, the Department of Horticulture, Entomology, Fertilizer Control, the offices of the staff of the Agriculture Editor and administrative offices. The exterior of the building is constructed of shot-sawn Indiana limestone with a Texolite interior. It was windowless and fully air-conditioned (the windowless exterior was a trade-off for including air-conditioning to the building)
Memorial Union Tower
Original construction plans, approved by the Alumni Association in 1916, called for a tower flanked by north and south wings. The underlying concept of a student union was a Campus location for alumni and undergraduates to interact. The tower, finished in 1926, became a memorial when the names of 116 students killed in World War I were engraved in its stone arch. Construction of the south wing began in 1930, but soon after the foundation was laid, work was halted by the Depression.
