bullet Below is the same photo of the campus, superimposed with footprints of 1940-era hospital buildings. Note that the hospital quadrangle is not yet complete, and an unconnected building (a chapel) occpies one corner.  A new chapel (now called the June M. Sherman Interfaith Chapel) would eventually be built near the finished quad. The large footprint near the center of the photo is the Female Center. A companion building, the Male Center, was located on the other side of the quadrangle.  The building site for the Female Center was selected as the location for the future College of Health and Human Services building.
