Watch this space as I share selected photos of different aspects of Florida Southern College, beginning with the esplanades. I will include some not often seen photos of Pfeiffer and Danforth Chapels, as well as details of the block. Comments? Feedback? http://books.schipp.co/byandaboutwright/Welcom...

During our recent trip to Wichita, we also visited the Wichita State University Corbin Education Center. Check out a few photos and a link to WSU's site description.
