Yesterday (day 7) my husband Robert and I went to nearby Ashland, OR on an errand. We thought it would be fun for me to do a watercolor study of something at Southern Oregon University (SOU). I chose “Churchill Hall” which we used to call the administration building.
You see, some thirty years ago my Robert and I were attending SOU. Robert was a Political Science major. I was doing graduate studies in biology. At that time the school was known as Southern Oregon State College (SOSC). It has had various other names too, such as Southern Oregon Normal School; Southern Oregon College.
I looked online and found some “gee whiz” facts about Churchill Hall.
- Built in 1926
- Italianate Revival Architectural Style
- Houses president, senior staff and class rooms for the nursing program
- One of the past presidents of the University was Julius A. Churchill
And, here I thought it was named after Winston.
Mostly, I liked the nice lawn, trees and garden around Churchill Hall.
