Drawing 2nd Floor - Room 51.
This image depicts a Drawing class, likely being taught by Charles T. McFarlane before he officially joined the Drawing department. The sole faculty member of the Drawing department listed in the 1892-93 register, John Goodison, passed away sometime around October 1892, a few months before this picture would have been taken. Goodison had been a part of the Normal faculty since 1861, and was highly regarded by both staff and students alike. He was described as being patient no matter the circumstance, and he always had words of encouragement for his students regardless of their talent level.
