Sculpture on the Library
( 2017-05-08) Wiley, Nell ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Everywhere on the campus of Iowa State College we are aware of the beauty and art in buildings and surroundings. An example of especially fine art is seen on the panels of our library. It is one of the finest libraries in the middle west. The two panels in low relief are at the corners of the upper part of the facade and were cut after the stone was in place, necessitating the erection of high scaffolds, so that Miss Nellie Walker, the noted sculptress, who designed the panels, could work from the outside. A kind of canvas tent was built around the scaffold, which aroused curious minds. The panels were not fully disclosed until they were almost finished. The panel to the right as one faces the building symbolizes the .activities of the girls and represents, from left to right, Art, Home Economics, both domestic and industrial, and Literature. The panel to the left represents the interests of the boys, Engineering, Science, Veterinary Medicine and Agriculture.

There was a huge range, where all toasted their toes on chill wintry days, and where mother perspired correspondingly on balmy summer days. There was the pan· try, with its complete stock of staples, the cellar, only twenty feet from the back porch, with a storage capacity envied by our wholesalers in this age of limited warehouse space; there was the work table, alternately used for the actual labor of preparing meals, and later adorned with the famous and now extinct red table cloth, exalted to the feeding and social center of the family.
