Looking Back to 1941: Construction of NIU's Science Building

From the October 19, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back.

1941, 75 Years Ago.

"Despite some slight delays in the arrival of materials, good progress is being made on the construction of the new science building at the State Teachers College (Northern Illinois University today).  All the cement for the first floor has been laid and at the present time there is a delay due to the non-arrival of steel for the framework for the upper stories.

"In the meantime work on the installation of some of the plumbing has started and the basement floor is being graded so that work on the floor can be started."
