Class in Literature Second Floor - Room 42
This image depicts a Literature class. There is a prominent quote on the chalkboard that reads, “Truth is the highest thing a man may keep.” Literature played a prominent role in the lives of many students at the Normal, as the four largest clubs at the Normal were literary societies. Additionally the English Language and Literature Department was one of the largest departments at the Normal in 1893 which, along with the Mathematics Department, had four staff members (some departments only had one staff member at the time).
