Photos had been hanging in frames on the upper level of Paul V. Galvin Library for at least 12 years. Frames and glass were removed (except for the training corp photo) at the request of Catherine Bruck, University Archivist, when they were removed from the wall and sent to the IIT Archives. She was told several years ago by a staff member in the IIT facilities office that they (facilities personnel) had found the photos somewhere on campus, framed them, and hung them in the library.
