Something is pretty screwy with the first paragraph. The inserted note in the right margin speaks of the Normal Building, the paragraph itself is talking of the new Library Building, the architect mentioned (Packard) did build the Normal School building...but Charles Kirscher is the architect for the new Library, as mentioned on the page just previous this one. ??? This topic SHOULD have been referring to the erection of the new Library being constructed by Kircher.
