Postcard of the Library in Jesse Hall

University Archives, Collection C:0/46/34

This is a postcard from the time showing the library in Academic Hall, now Jesse Hall.  The Library was crowded back then not only because it was the most popular spot on campus, but because the books did not circulate. They had to be used in the library.  see The Heart of the University: MU Libraries
