Students working outside of the Administration Building, c. 1896
View Full Image
A small black and white print of students working outside of the Administration Building on Springfield College, taken around 1896 to 1897. The photograph shows one student wearing the school symbol, the triangle, on the front of his shirt. He is standing with a shovel. A couple of other students stand behind them. The Administration Building was constructed in 1896 and was the second building on the campus of Springfield College, at the time called the International YMCA Training School. Throughout much of Springfield College's history, students worked on campus and helped to build the campus. Today this tradition is shown in the school's Humanics in Action Day, where the staff and students at Springfield College go off and work within the community. Photograph was donated by Percy F. Jerome, Class of 1898. He may have taken the photographs.
