    That would be the first college gym — where some fans looked down on the court to watch the game, while standing on the wooden track that was suspended above and surrounded the playing floor — talk about your crackerbox gym !!

    It was the gym. My mom played basketball there back in the mid 1940s! I always thought that was cool when I did my work study at the library back in 1977/78.

    It was the gym. I didn’t think it was very effective space for a library, until it was remodeled after I graduated.

    It was the gym. By the time I was a student in 1955 it had been transformed to a library. Amazing how different buildings have changed over the years!!

    My personal playground from 1946, as a 5year old, to 1961, before I left for the Navy. Some people called it the Old Gym, after George M Allee Gym was built. I watched the Globe Trotters play there.
    My favorite spot to play was next door in the old barn housing part of an airplane, we climbed into to pretend we were Eddie Rickenbacker.
    Who is George M Allee or Bass are a pretty good Trivia Questions.

    Marian Jones Hall of Culture (AKA the ‘old gym’) How well my great-grandmother would have known this as she
    graduated in 1905. Morningside College is held in high
    regards with our family.
