Mission Accomplished: My Twenty Years in Chapin Hall

Identifier: 009.02.10

Essay "Mission Accomplished: My Twenty Years in Chapin Hall" by Phil S. Shurrager, apparently delivered as a paper to the Chicago Literary Club, April 22, 1968.

The essay primarily concerns the structure originally built as part of the Armour Flats apartment complex which was later converted by Armour Institute and Illinois Institute of Technology for use as the Physics Building and Chapin Hall, which housed the psychology department and other academic and administrative offices. It also includes lesser amounts of original information about the psychology program at Illinois Institute of Technology, James C. Peebles' "A History of Armour Institute of Technology," the Mission Building/Student Union, women at Illinois Institute of Technology, and the Mecca Building.
