Quincy College-Gyrfalcon (1949)

This tranquil image comes from the 1949 yearbook for Quincy College, now Quincy University. The photo captures the bell tower of Francis Hall framed by trees laced with snow. Francis Hall was originally built between 1893-1898, and the building continues to form the backbone of the Quincy, Illinois campus today.

More memory was added and VuFind returned to normal operation by 3:30 PM.

I will post another update when this work has been completed. If a service is offline or not working properly after emergency maintenance is completed, please contact support@carli.illinois.edu.

From  Historical Collection (Chicago State University) in CARLI Digital Collections.

This photo dated from the 1870s captures the faculty of the Cook County Normal School, which evolved to become what is now Chicago State University. The Chicago Normal School was founded in 1867 and did not find its first permanent home until around 1870, so these instructors must be among the founding faculty of the fledgling institution.
