Ellis Old and New

Jesse Hall Library 1910

University Archives, Collection C:20/8/6

This picture of the Library in from 1910. Changes are afoot. The cane chairs of 1907 have been replaced with new chairs and the  books have come from behind the librarian's desk and fill the shelves surrounding the room. The books still did not circulate as this time. Too many of them had gone missing or been stolen in earlier decades.
