Review

 

"A meticulously researched story of the planning, construction, dedication and evolution of the historic classroom building on the UI Quad. . . . Hoffmann's book makes clear that ... Lincoln Hall is a wondrous collection of art and architecture, as well as a unique tribute to Illinois' most favorite son."--The News-Gazette

Book Description

Lincoln Hall at the University of Illinois, named to commemorate the centennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth, was funded by the Illinois State Legislature in 1909 and dedicated in 1913 on Lincoln's birthday, February 12. In addition to its function as space for offices, classrooms, and departmental libraries, Lincoln Hall was commissioned, designed, and built to convey "the wisdom and patriotism of the democracy of learning." This spirit of freedom and equality in education was manifest in Lincoln Hall's artistic design, which features terra cotta panels depicting Lincoln's life, quotations from his writings, and portraits of prominent figures of his day.

 

Commemorating the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth, this magisterial volume chronicles the history of Lincoln Hall from its conception to its expansion and its present role on the campus. John Hoffmann identifies each of the building's historical panels and the portraits of Lincoln's contemporaries. Lavishly illustrated to show how much care was taken with the details of the design, this book provides a lasting historical record of the building's century-long place at the University of Illinois.

 

Supported by the Office of the Chancellor of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
