One thought on “Images of Shepherd College early 20th century”

  1. It seems that your university is proud of its history and has set up some neat material for the public to look through. That is probably helping your research immensely! I love all the photos you are sharing; my campus has quite a few photos of the original buildings before and after a fire destroyed “Old Main” in 1914. There are not many photos of the inside of the buildings on my campus, which I’m sad about because they would be so neat to see! Great job thus far on your research! You’re way ahead of me!
